Catholic woman in Belfast awarded £20,000 after colleague shouted 'tiocfaidh ár lá' at her

A woman in Belfast has been awarded £20,000 compensation after an employment tribunal found a colleague subjected her to sectarian harassment when he shouted "Tiocfaidh ár la" at her while at work.

Helen Scott, 52, brought a case against Belfast-based bathroom suppliers Stevenson & Reid Ltd, on the grounds that she was discriminated against, harassed and victimised due to her religious belief or political opinion and constructively unfairly dismissed.

Ms Scott said the company workforce was primarily Protestant and that she was the only Catholic member of staff working at the company's East Belfast showroom, where she was employed as a sales manager
