Reserved judgment in jarvey drivers case

12 Feb

The High Court has reserved judgment in a challenge brought by a group of jarvey drivers to ban them from driving through Killarney National Park unless they agree to attach dung-catchers to their horse-drawn carriages.

The 27 jarveys, who claim the dung-catchers are dangerous, are seeking a court order quashing the ban imposed last October by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

The case concluded after two days this week before Mr Justice Liam McKechnie who reserved judgment.

The jarveys claim there was no lawful authority for imposition of the condition of attaching dung-catchers or to refuse them permits to access the park on grounds they would not agree to the dung-catchers.
