A Judicial Review of then Minister Alex White's decision to grant consent to Shell, 29 December 2015, to operate the Corrib Gas pipeline begins in the High Court on Tuesday.
The hearing is scheduled to last for four days. Shell to Sea spokesperson Maura Harrington is the sole Applicant in the hearing and is representing herself as a lay litigant. The application is contested by the State as Respondents and Shell as Notice Party in the proceedings.
On 31 December 2015 there was a flaring event at the Corrib Gas installation which resulted in Shell being prosecuted by the EPA.
