for a massive development on the flood plain outside Carrick on Shannon, FIE lodges a Planning Appeal. The last permission, for apartments, marina and business park, was overturned after FIE's appeal because the site is on a flood plain.

But Leitrim County Council doesn't care. The Tesco submission gives a rise in water levels that will be 80 times as great as the developers of the previous application gave for their development. Yet Leitrim gave permission again.

FIE sought representation on the Office of Public Works Flood Risk Review. Tom Parlon, TD, the PD Minister. only replied after we drew attention on this site to his non reply over the past six months. He has now assured FIE that they are "extreemly cognisant of the central position of environmental considerations". In the absence of Irish Flood Planning Guidelines, we attach the UK version.

In a brave decision, the planning Appeals Board finds against the proposed Mayo Gas Terminal. INDEX. The excavated peat repository would have a ' high probability of failure' and posed an 'unacceptable risk'. The decision is so serious a blow to the industry and Government that it is hard to see how changes in the law will not follow, eliminating the rights of objectors.

in Kenmare, County Kerry - but pleases many residents of the town - by quoting from the newly published 'The Traveler's Guide to Sacred Sites in Ireland' which suggests that one of Ireland's finest stone circles has been turned into a 'feature garden', calling it 'like seeing an elephant in a tutu - I'd rather not'. The owners, having lost an appeal against Kerry County's Council's grant of three bungalows around the circle which is in the town itself, have closed off the traditional right of way. They are now proceeding to charge for entrance, having surrounded the circle with garden leylandii which are blocking the view of those who do not pay.
