A woman who sued after allegedly slipping and fracturing her leg at a 2007 Rolling Stones concert at Slane Castle has withdrawn her case at the High Court.

Victoria Clayton withdrew her case yesterday on its second day as it was approaching a conclusion with evidence from the concert site manager.

Noel MacMahon SC, for Ms Clayton, told Ms Jus- tice Mary Irvine his client was withdrawing her case and no further orders were required. The judge said that seemed a “wise” decision.

Ms Clayton had said she suffered fractures to her leg and was in immense pain after the fall just before the Rolling Stones came out on stage for the August 2007 gig at Slane.

A nurse with an address at Portadown, Co Armagh, Ms Clayton had sued MCD Productions Ltd, Park Road, Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin, and Corporate Solutions Group, Coes Road, Dundalk, Co Louth as a result of the accident on August 18th 2007.
