I'll be back, vows Blathnaid
A defiant Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh yesterday assured viewers she would be back on air next autumn.
In an end-of-season show on RTE One, the Afternoon Show co-host closed with: "We'll see you back in September." Blathnaid, dressed in a black and white tartan dress, thanked viewers and wished them, "a wonderful summer".
Her colleague, Trevor Keegan, showed his support for the mum of four by kissing her on the cheek as he said his good-byes. Last month it emerged that RTE had scheduled an internal tribunal enquiry to investigate bullying claims which have continued to rack the popular show.
Montrose bosses have refused to say whether Blathnaid will be returning to the show.
