Supreme Court refuses appeal over new Dublin Airport runway
The Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by local residents over the planned €320 million new runway at Dublin Airport.In a published determination, a three-judge Supreme Court said the matters raised by 22 residents in their appeal over a decision to extend the period of the project’s planning approval did not involve an issue of general public importance.Last February the High Court’s Mr Justice Max Barrett refused permission for leave to bring an appeal of the case to the Court of Appeal. He found no points of exceptional public importance had been raised.The decision followed Mr Justice Barrett’s November judgment rejecting the residents’ case against the runway.
