High Court refuses leave to appeal in Macroom bypass case

On 19 July 2013, the High Court, O’Malley J, refused to grant leave to appeal to the Supreme Court in Stack Shanahan v Ireland and the Attorney General, An Bord Pleanála, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Cork County Council and the National Roads Authority [2013] IEHC 348.  Text of the judgment is available on the Courts Service website.

The High Court had previously refused the various reliefs sought by the applicants in judicial review proceedings challenging the decision of An Bord Pleanála to grant approval for the development of a dual carriageway from Baile Bhuirne to Coolcour – bypassing Macroom.  See Stack Shanahan v Ireland and the Attorney General, An Bord Pleanála, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Cork County Council and the National Roads Authority [2012] IEHC 571.  Text of the judgment is available on the Courts Service website.
