Michael Colgan has apologised to any person who he's hurt or who was made to feel upset.
The former director of the Gate has written an article in the Sunday Independent to respond to allegations of inappropriate conduct.
In the piece, Michael Colgan says that through "misjudged behaviour" he caused upset to some of his co-workers and that he's truly sorry.
He added that he knew he was not politically correct and that he often sacrificed proper conduct for a punchline.
He acknowledged that he could be too exacting as a boss and said that realising he caused distress to people he worked with shocked him.
He said he thought he was liked by all staff but now thinks people were laughing at his jokes because he was their boss and not because he was funny.
He added that his behaviour should not be equated with sexual crimes and apologised to any person he's hurt and his friends as well as to the board of the Gate for any stress caused.
