To mark the historic occasion, the first ever Annual Report of the Supreme Court will be presented.

It’s just the third time the court will sit outside Dublin – as well as the first time the Supreme Court will sit outside a courthouse since it returned to the Four Courts in 1932.

On Wednesday, the court will hear an appeal over whether An Bord Pleanála breached its legal obligations in how it approved the first phase of Apple’s planned data centre in Athenry.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Tuam area councillors are calling on Transport Infrastructure Ireland to carry-out a safety audit on a key section of the N84 Headford Road.

Fianna Fail Councillor Mary Hoade put forward a motion at this week’s district meeting for the transport body to carry-out the safety assessment on the route from Ballindooley to Cloughanover.

The motion, which also called for verges to be cut back at the Balroebuck junction, was carried unanimously.

It comes as there have been several road traffic incidents along the busy routes recently, including two at the Grange junction in the past week.

Councillor Hoade argues the Grange junction is an area of particular concern to road users and local residents.

Director of Services for the Tuam MD Derek Pender told members he will have an answer from TII for the next district meeting, adding that the roads body has always been very generous in supplying funding.

Councillor Hoade argues that stacking lanes and turning lanes are needed at junctions exiting onto the N84.
