The estranged wife of singer Van Morrison has withdrawn her case over sea views and privacy at her home in Dalkey in Dublin.

The High Court was told that Michelle Morrison had considered the matter over the weekend and had decided she did not wish to proceed with her claim against her neighbours, Conor and Eileen Kavanagh.

Mr Justice David Keane said he was dismissing the case on the basis that he was told the matter was being withdrawn.

The case was due to go into its fifth day today.

Over the weekend Van Morrison issued a statement dissociating himself from the legal action.

He said he had never lived in the house on Sorrento Road and that he and Michelle Rocca had been legally separated since September 2013.

Ms Morrison was not present in court today and her lawyers told the court she wanted to withdraw her claim.

She had claimed her neighbours had breached an agreement that her family would continue to enjoy a view of Killiney Bay following building work on their property.

She claimed that there was an agreement with her neighbours over the height of shrubbery that was to be planted.

The Kavanaghs denied there was any panoramic view of the bay or that Ms Morrison was legally entitled to such a view.

In her evidence last week, Ms Morrison said that she and Van had decided the house would be a family home, and that privacy was an important consideration for Van.

This was the second legal action taken by Ms Morrison against Mr and Mrs Kavanagh in relation to work done on their home. 

The previous case was settled.

Lawyers for the Kavanaghs asked the court to "mark its opprobrium" over what they described as a vexatious and unstateable case by awarding costs beyond the normal.

Senior Counsel Esmond Keane said the Kavanaghs' enjoyment of their principal private residence had been utterly tarnished and their lives made a living hell for the last six years.

He said Ms Morrison's evidence had been palpably incorrect and the court should mark its disapproval of her conduct, particularly as the Kavanaghs had been dragged through the courts.

Lawyers for Ms Morrison said she fully accepted she would have to pay the legal costs but the court should not infer the case was falling apart or was frivolous or vexatious because she was not proceeding.

Senior Counsel Mark Sanfey said life had not been a picnic for either the Morrisons or the Kavanaghs.

Mr Justice Keane said he wanted to carefully consider the issue of costs and would give a decision later.
