Fresh Water Habitat Destruction for DCC-Covanta Incinerator

Did DDDA authorise the destruction of the largest fresh water resource for wildlife in south Dublin Bay, an area of special protection (SPA & SAC)?  DDDA previously authorised the HQ for Anglo Irish Bank and did so illegally ('ultra vires').  Is DDDA again acting 'illegally'?


Did Dublin City Council authorise this habitat destruction?  If so is DCC acting illegally.  In December 2009 Judge McKechnie adjudicated DCC to have massaged facts and to have used undue influence in a process supposed to be in the public interest.

  • Where was the planning approval?  Bord Plean├íla did not approve this destruction.
  • Where is the Environmental Impact Statement?
  • Where is the EPA approval?
  • Is Mr Gormley again looking for excuses?

The land is owned by a state company, Dublin Port Company.  Bertie freely acknowledges he appointed his buddies to run Dublin Port Company.  Does Dublin Port Company have permission from any authorised body to destroy habitat in a SPA?

Departing port chief gets €800,000 pension top-up

A SEMI-state company with a pension deficit of almost €50m gave a massive €800,000 top-up to its departing chief executive, the Irish Independent has learned.

The pension payout was paid to Dublin Port Company chief executive Enda Connellan, who is due to step down later this week. This is on top of a basic salary of €239,000 he received last year.

He was also paid director's fees of €12,000 and other benefits totalling €66,000, bringing his total pay packet to €317,000 in 2009.

This is a significant rise on the €222,000 he was paid in 2008.

Revelations about the Dublin Port chief's pension boost came after it emerged that Finance Minister Brian Lenihan was planning to cut the salaries of chief executives of commercial semi-state companies.
