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

“We absolutely deny all allegations against RTÉ,” said Mairéad McKenna BL, who appeared for the broadcaster at a preliminary hearing…

…Claire Bruton BL [representing Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh] said she had “no difficulty” with an instruction to the press not to name the alleged perpetrators but added: “My client is very keen for the matter to proceed in public.”

She made reference to an internal investigation report in which three individuals were named, one of them a “public figure”.

“When you’re dealing with programmes in Irish and trying to attract people to TG4…. do you think they are being ‘tacky’ so as to entice people? – that’s what I think is happening.

You can write an article that can cause a lot of damage to people and shame people, or you can produce programmes that shame people …this programme shames that young girl.

It doesn’t matter what [people] think … she may be laughing about it but I was uncomfortable watching it. A lot of people felt very uncomfortable about this programme….Where is the humanity in these actions? There is none.

I’d like to hear from TG4 what were they thinking when they planned this, when they commissioned it”

In next Sunday’s ‘The Moment of Truth’, Blathnaid Ní Chofaigh talks to Danielle, an Irish woman “who in her late teens became pregnant and travelled to England to have an abortion. It is a choice that has marked her life, but which she still does not regret.”

Have we turned a corner?

What about the shame and the cancer we were told about?
