The problem was not a lack of water and only about 43 per cent of the water put into Dublin’s water supply system every day was actually being used, she maintained. “I cannot accept a proposal to take water [from the Shannon] to a city that doesn’t need it,” he added.

An Irish man serving an “indeterminate” sentence in the UK for “very grave sexual offences” against his daughter and step-daughter has lost his appeal over the Minister for Justice’s refusal to sanction his transfer to a prison here. Under UK law, the man’s IPP sentence was to last for an initial eight-year period, subject to review by the UK parole authorities. In the circumstances, he affirmed the High Court finding the man had not set out arguable grounds for judicial review of the refusal. An IPP sentence is “quite unknown” in Irish law and it is not easy to see how such a sentence can readily be adapted, or even understood, by reference to the traditional Irish sentencing regime, he said. After the Minister refused transfer, the man sought to challenge that via judicial review but the High Court found he had not set out arguable grounds for review.
