Closed - circuit television ( CCTV ), also known as video surveillance, is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors.

CCTV was a key factor in the hotel's decision to defend the claim. In defence papers, it alleged Ms Bailey had items in each hand, restricting her ability to balance or hold rope grips properly. The hotel was not commenting on the matter yesterday as, although Ms Bailey has said she is dropping the case, a notice of discontinuance has yet to be issued.

During a radio interview, the under-fire TD refused to reveal if Ms Madigan had given her legal advice before she lodged the personal injury claim.

At the time of the incident in 2015, both were Fine Gael councillors on Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. Ms Madigan has so far refused to reveal if she personally provided legal advice to her party colleague.

"I think when you withdraw a claim that in and of itself is an acknowledgement of the fact that perhaps that claim shouldn't have proceeded. But the interview still seemed to be in the space of blaming lots of other people," he said.

The Irish Independent revealed last Tuesday that Ms Bailey was claiming the hotel was negligent because the swing was "unsupervised" and there were no signs to instruct patrons how to safely use it.

In the RTÉ interview, Ms Bailey said she decided the same day to withdraw the case because she didn't want it to be a distraction and not because she had done anything wrong.

It stated that because of her injuries, Ms Bailey was unable to run for three months.

However, a posting on her own social media account revealed she took part in 'The Bay 10K' race in Dún Laoghaire just three weeks after the incident.
