    Default Galway Bypass - Denied by busybodies and Flat Earthers.

    EU court blocks bypass over fears of damage to protected limestone - Independent.ie

    This ruling is against the wishes of the vast majority of the people of Galway City.
    To protect 1.5% of the total hectorage of the 270 Hectares of protected limestone in the Corrib Basin, the people and city of Galway can go and hump themselves and stay stuck in cars taking an hour or more to cross the city.

    Well done to Mr Sweetman. Dont show your face on the streets of Galway again.

    The council and Govt. should drive on with the plan and construct the bypass. Let Mr. Sweetman and the European Court go perform self penetration acitivites.

    Do you reject all public participation in the planning process?

    This is exactly the type of thing where the EU has no business whatsoever. The local environment should belong to the nation state and should not be the concern of a supranational organisation whose purpose was for free trade, though sadly that remit has long been lost in a sea of leftist quangos.

    Why would anyone want to bypass Galway?

    You could apply the same logic to The Amazon, Congo Basin or Indonesian Jungles, sometimes the local public need to accept interference for the greater good - a road can be re routed, but natural habitat or an environment of special interest cannot be easily recreated.

    The problem is not the plans being stopped, but how long it generally takes to amend plans - that's where improvements and changes are required.

    The good people of Galway may not agree with the result of the inquiry but you certainly come across as a bitter person. Not the way to win over support at any further inquiry. I don't think the Connaught Telegraph would print your post.

    Well done Mr. Sweetman and the Dept. of the Environment who backed him. Irish local government bodies have an appalling record when it comes to planning and it is no harm to see manners put on them.
