The Compliance Committee of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has upheld complaints concerning a sketch about God on the RTÉ New Year’s Eve Countdown programme on 31 December.

RTÉ broadcast a statement reflecting the BAI decision before the Nine O'Clock News on RTÉ One.

In January, RTÉ's Editorial Standards Board found that the satirical sketch did not comply with RTÉ's own standards and broader regulations.

At the time RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes said the broadcaster accepted the findings and apologised.
