Invitation To Public To High Court Climate Case

PRESS RELEASE - MONDAY 9 OCTOBER, 2017

INVITATION TO PUBLIC TO HIGH COURT CLIMATE CASE

Friends of the Irish Environment is celebrating our 20th anniversary in the High Court which is currently hearing two of our Judicial Reviews as we launch our 20th anniversary €20 fund raiser.

We’re inviting the public to join us and see our challenges unfold.

One is Ireland’s first climate case. Did the local authority fail to meet the requirements of Ireland's climate legislation in extending the permission for the proposed third runway at Dublin airport? Are our constitution rights inter-generational?

The climate case resumes at 2pm in Court 12 tomorrow – Tuesday – 10 October 2017.

The other case relates to the widespread uncontrolled industrial extraction of turf by large horticultural companies revealed by a satellite survey done for FIE by University College Cork. The extraction of peat is not only a nature conservation issue, but impacts on drinking water quality and destroys our finest carbon sinks.

That’s on tomorrow at 11.15 in Court 25. For updates text 087 2176316.

By celebrating the coincidence of FIE’s two concurrent court cases with our 20th anniversary fund raiser in the High Court itself we can also take the opportunity to thank the solicitors and barristers who have given their time and skills pro bono for so many years.

Join us – and if you can’t be there, perhaps you can support our 20th anniversary €20 fund raiser and help ensure openness and transparency in the Government’s treatment of the environment.
