FARMER AGREES NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ESB UPGRADE WORK ON HIS LAND

first_imgA DONEGAL sheep farmer has agreed before the High Court not to interfere with the carrying out of electricity line upgrade works on his land.The court heard the line is of vital importance in supplying electricity supply for the whole of Donegal.The ESB and Eirgrid plc last week sought injunctions preventing Patrick Gallagher, Galdonagh, Manorcunningham, from interfering with or obstructing the work as well as orders requiring him to remove or remedy any obstructions which have been placed on the land at Listak. Yesterday, Mr Gallagher undertook before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan to allow the ESB onto his lands and not to interfere with the work.The court heard the works are needed on a 110kw power line and if not done could affect the entire electricity supply in Donegal.The Irish Independent reports that Mr Gallagher, representing himself, said he had been in dispute with the ESB over compensation.He said he was entitled such compensation from the ESB from work done on the lands in the 1990’s and also claimed there had been damage to his land during previous such works.The court heard it had been agreed outstanding issues over compensation would go to arbitration.The case was adjourned to June.FARMER AGREES NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ESB UPGRADE WORK ON HIS LAND was last modified: April 10th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ESBfarmerHIGH COURTlast_img read more
