Sean O'Rourke will no longer work with RTÉ

O'Rourke was a presenter with RTÉ for over 25 years.

RTÉ has announced that it will no longer work with Sean O'Rourke.

In a statement issued on Monday evening, RTÉ confirmed that the two had parted ways, and that it would not be proceeding with plans for future projects together.

O'Rourke had already retired from his show Today with Sean O'Rourke, but it was expected that he would continue working with the broadcaster in the future.

RTÉ said that it would like to thank Sean for his enormous contribution to broadcasting and wish him well with his future plans.

O'Rourke was in the news recently for attending the controversial Galway golf party, though RTÉ has not cited this as a reason for this decision.

However, O'Rourke himself appeared to reference the event in a statement, saying: "I spent many years with RTÉ presenting programmes on which public figures were called to account for their actions.

"Now I must call myself to account. The right course is to set aside our plans for my return to the airwaves."
