Court to fast-track Corrib challenges

Two challenges to key consents signed by former minister for energy Pat Carey for construction of the final section of the Corrib gas pipeline scheme in Co Mayo are to be fast-tracked by the Commercial Court.

An Taisce and local residents Monica Muller and Peter Sweetman separately want to overturn the consents signed on the day of the general election. The actions may be heard in tandem with earlier challenges by the same parties to a decision of An Bord Pleanála in January.
