Filmmaker settles libel case after RTE issues an apology

A FILMMAKER has welcomed an apology from RTE for "unfair and incorrect" claims made about her in a programme broadcast on Radio na Gaeltachta almost two years ago.

In the High Court yesterday the state broadcaster apologised to Neasa Ni Chianain, the maker of the controversial documentary on poet Cathal O Searcaigh, 'Fairytale of Kathmandu', for the interview on 'An Saol O Dheas' in which poet Paddy Bushe made the unchallenged claims.
