CORRECTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS Apology and clarification: Mark Dearey


Article on Louth Planning:


Mark Dearey was not a member of Louth County Council in 2007 and so did not vote, indeed could not have voted,  for the Carnbeg material contravention mentioned in our  News section  article which focused on payments made to appellants who withdrew their appeals from An Bord Pleanála, “Nearly €1 million paid for planning appeal withdrawal’ (Village, Aug-Sept 2013, p 36). 

Village apologises to Councillor Dearey and wholeheartedly accepts his  assertion that he is fit to seek public office and that there is no question mark over his probity in planning matters
