An action for damages taken by a former employee of the Gate Theatre has been resolved, RTÉ News has learned.

Ciara Elizabeth Smyth lodged her High Court action against the Gate last May.

The claim related to a number of issues, including assault, negligence, emotional suffering, breach of contract and breach of duty.

A notice discontinuing the case was filed with the High Court earlier this week.

Both parties have said the case was resolved to their satisfaction and Ms Smyth is understood to be happy with the outcome.
