CIÉ fails to have CPO order quashed

CIÉ has failed in a High Court bid to quash a compulsory purchase order over some of its property in the Cork docklands.

Mr Justice Iarfhlaith O’Neill rejected claims that the consent of the Minister for Transport was a necessary initial precondition to the CPO process before it could begin.

He said consent could be obtained at any time up to the latest stage in the process.

An Bord Pleanála had adjourned its hearing into the CPO pending the outcome of the case.
