Lansdowne House, Dublin 4.
Via Irish Times:
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”.
