O'Kane's decision to republish the photographs in the Irish Daily Star angered the paper's co-owners. He was suspended while an internal investigation was carried out. "As a result of the publication on 15 September 2012, issues arose with the shareholders of Independent Star Limited," the paper said in a statement to the BBC. "Having considered those issues in tandem with Mr O'Kane, it is Mr O'Kane's decision to resign as editor of the Irish Daily Star, effective immediately."
