Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh has withdrawn a sexual harassment case taken against RTÉ at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).

Ms Ní Chofaigh was not present at a brief hearing at the WRC this morning.

Her barrister Claire Bruton BL read a statement at the opening of the hearing, stating that her client "withdraws her allegation of discrimination by the respondent".

"The claimant accepts the outcome of the RTÉ investigation processes in respect of all matters," Ms Bruton said.

"The parties confirm they are both satisfied to have reached agreement to draw a line in the sand and move on from these matters in light of their ongoing working relationship," she added.

The hearing was also told that Ms Ní Chofaigh confirms that no compensation was paid to her in the context of the agreement.

Mairéad McKenna SC, who appeared for RTÉ, confirmed the position.

Ms Ní Chofaigh had lodged a complaint under the Employment Equality Act against RTÉ, alleging discrimination by way of harassment during July 2019 and subsequent victimisation.

She claimed she was sidelined and isolated after raising the issue.

RTÉ had denied the allegations.

The case was expected to run over the course of four days.
