Move to halt stadium work

TWO residents will apply to the High Court next month for a stay halting works on the redevelopment of Lansdowne Road stadium.

The application by Kevin McMahon and Mariaelena Byrne, of O'Connell Gardens, Sandymount, Dublin, will be heard on July 12.

They want the stay pending the outcome of their application for leave to bring a legal challenge to the development. The hearing will be in October but Mr Justice Peter Kelly adjourned to July 12 a decision on whether it should be heard either at the same time as, or immediately after, a separate leave application by two other residents, Brian O'Keeffe and Rosemarie Loftus, both of Lansdowne Road, Dublin.

The judge fixed October 4 for the hearing of the leave application by Mr O'Keeffe and Ms Loftus.
