FIE's extensive appeal against the proposed location of the RNLI Lifeboat station at Castletownbere, Co. Cork was rejected by the appeals Board - it was a day late due to postal delays during the bad weather at the New Year. No provision exists for exceptions to the rules. This is especially gutting as the Appeal includes the results of a Council file study showing that both engineers and planners were well aware of the traffic chaos at the site, and that no funds exist to put in place any solution. It is inexplicable that a development relating to emergency services could even be considered at this location.

Read the (rejected) appeal.
