27 February 2006
Irish Shell Ltd have had a court proceedings brought against them by Meath County Council, who are seeking damages of up to €5 million over a leakage at one of their filling stations adjacent to the council’s new offices in Trim.
Shell Ireland has admitted that the leakage of petrol and diesel was their fault and accepted responsibility for cleaning up the site after the incident in January 2001.
However, Meath County Council believes that the site has not been cleaned to a standard that was agreed upon by the concerned parties and have brought the case to court.
The Council has also brought the case against Patrick Kavanagh and Sons Ltd (Trim), who were leasing the site at the time of the incident, although they denied liability.
