Company can appeal court order for rates
Enniscorthy company Eco Wood Brix Ltd., on the Old Dublin Road, has been granted leave to appeal against a court order for payment of more than €33,000 in outstanding rates to Wexford County Council.
The matter was mentioned at the civil sitting of Wexford District Court on April, where Judge Timothy Lucey was informed that his colleague, Judge John Coughlan, had granted an order for €33,192.97 in the Council's favour the previous week.
Solicitor Triona Walsh, representing the Council, explained to Judge Lucey that company director Arthur O'Neill was not present in court when Judge Coughlan dealt with the matter, but had been present on previous occasions. He also appeared after Judge Coughlan made the order, but the Judge was unwilling to re-open the case. She said she had no issue with Mr O'Neill's right to appeal.
Judge Lucey granted leave to appeal the order within a further 14 days.
