Richard Grogan, a Dublin-based employment solicitor and latterly a star of Irish social media, has passed away. Richard’s advice videos on various issues around employment law became viral hits, and he became known to many for his catchphrase, "that's the law and that's a fact
." At first, he thought he’d be too old for TikTok, explaining, "I was asked to do a course in the Law Society on the use of social media in the legal profession and somebody put their hand up and told me I should use TikTok. That was November 30, 2021, I said 'well, I'm not 16, and I can't sing or dance'. I went and had a look at it that evening and opened up my TikTok and posted my first video on December 1, 2021." In less than a year, Richard had accumulated 250,000 followers.
