Dates have now been confirmed for legal challenges against plans for the Galway City Outer Bypass. The legal challenges will be heard by the Supreme Court.
The two legal challenges against the plans will come up for mention before the Chief Justice today. The Sweetman versus An Bord Pleanála case will then be heard by the Supreme Court on June 2. The Hands Across the Corrib Ltd versus An Bord Pleanála will be heard on June 10.
Fianna Fáil Galway West TD Frank Fahey has welcomed the setting of dates for the hearings. He said: “I want to welcome the priority given by the Chief Justice to this case.”
