As reported by The Galway Eye last week, the data centre in Athenry is not yet ‘in the bag’!

Oisin Collins, counsel for Athenry locals Allan Daly and Sinead Fitzpatrick told the Commercial Court today that his clients intended to seek a certificate for leave to appeal.

Dublin businessman Brian McDonagh said he ‘needs more time’ to consider his position with respect to lodging a further appeal to the €850m development.

The application for permission to appeal from Daly and Fitzpatrick will be heard next week – October 25th.
