Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht
Departmental Legal Cases
482. To ask the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht the elements of the High Court ruling in a case (details supplied) which she is in agreement with, in view of her claim that she had no alternative but to appeal that judgment in its entirety. [37640/16]
As the judgments referred to by the Deputy give rise to concerns for my own Department about the administration of the National Monuments Acts and for other Departments and official bodies in relation to public and social infrastructure provision, the orders of the High Court in all three sets of proceedings have been appealed. As the matter is currently before the courts, it would not be appropriate to comment further on the matter at this juncture.
