Patrick Henderson

An article published in the Evening Herald on 29 March 2012 concerning an appeal to An Bórd Pleanála challenging the recent Notification to Grant Planning Permission by the Kerry County Council to Hotelier John Brennan, owner of Dromquinna Manor, Kenmare, Co. Kerry.

In that article we incorrectly stated that the appellant, Mr Patrick Henderson, of Faha East, Killarney, Co. Kerry has four active appeals lodged with An Bord Pleanála.

In fact, Mr Henderson has only one active appeal lodged with An Bórd Pleanála. We are happy to correct the record.

We wish to apologise to Mr Henderson for the distress caused to him as a result of this article.
