Cavan Quarry Owners Renege on Planning

"Company act in bad faith"

Cavan quarry owners John Nulty Limited have failed to forward a planning application for a quarry extension to Cavan County Council, despite earlier indications they would do so.

Red Brach Heritage have expressed dismay at the apparent failure of quarry company John Nulty Limited to lodge planning papers with Cavan County Council for a quarry extension at Ardkill More mountain, Carrickaboy, County Cavan.
The quarry company had placed a planning notice in the local Anglo-Celt newspaper a month ago through their architects, David McCormack and Co., indicating they intended to apply for planning approval for a quarry extension at Ardkill More. Illegal earth clearing work has being already taking place at the site since last April. However according to Red Branch Heritage chairman, John O’Reilly the application would appear to have failed to materialise. Mr. O’Reilly expressed his concern at the current situation saying an opportunity to solve the Cavan heritage problem seems to have being lost and he accused the Nulty firm of acting in bad faith and outside the law. Mr. O’Reilly also stated that Cavan County Council must take firm action to halt any further work on the extension until the planning process has run its course.
The Cavan heritage group has being attempting to protect the ancient Ulster defensive earthworks on Ardkill Mountain, known as the Black Pigs Dyke or Race. The original quarry has already destroyed a large section of the listed monument.
John O’Reilly stated that his group intended to bring forward proposals shortly to have the Ardkill site included in a new heritage area in the Denn area, which would also include the nearby Banagher Neolithic complex which had also being damaged in recent times.
