On the 23rd and 24th of November 2017 a timeline was published online by RTÉ entitled 'Timeline – Sergeant Maurice McCabe'.

Information relating to Alan Shatter's Ministerial involvement in relevant events relating to Sergeant McCabe and Mr Shatter’s subsequent exoneration from allegations made against him was omitted from the written timeline.

RTÉ recognises that Mr Shatter’s conduct as a Minister was vindicated by the O’Higgins Commission of Investigation Report in May 2016 and wishes to apologise to Alan Shatter for any reputational damage and upset caused by omitting this from the timeline.
