Legal Workshop Q&A session

23 October, Dublin

McCann FitzGerald Solicitors hosted a lunchtime legal workshop and Q&A session at their Dublin offices for CIEEM members on 23rd October. The workshop was chaired by Jenny Neff CEcol CEnv FCIEEM and opened with a presentation by solicitor Brendan Slattery on key recent Irish and European (CJEU) judgements, including:

  • Case C-323/17 People Over Wind & anor. v. Coillte
  • Case C-164/17, Grace v. An Bord Pleanála
  • Case C-461/17, Holohan v. An Bord Pleanála, Opinion of AG Kokott
  • Connelly v. An Bord Pleanála [2018] IESC 31

The Q&A panel comprised McCann FitzGerald solicitors Michelle Doyle, Brendan Slattery and Sinéad Martyn. It was a very interactive session, with opinions, questions and experiences shared from the floor. This was the third successful event of this kind for experienced ecological practitioners hosted by McCann FitzGerald and it is planned to make this an annual event.

This was followed up with a professional update article by Brendan Slattery and Jenny Neff in December’s In Practice in relation to the recent case law.
