Plans for a 300million power plant in Galway have formally come to a halt.
The proposal was originally submitted to An Bord Pleanála in 2007, for a decision on whether or not it would be strategic infrastructure.
Seán Quinn was the backer behind the proposal for a gas turbine power station with an electrical output of up to 450 megawatts at Toherroe.
The project was supposed to be part of a new venture by the Quinn Group to enter the electricity generation market in Ireland.
Quinn had an agreement with Coillte for 40 acres of land in Derrydonnell.
