Mr Justice Robert Haughton delivered his judgment at the Commercial Court this morning.

The 65 million euro scheme in West Kerry seeks to straighten and improve the road from Dingle to Annascaul and from Gortbreagoge to Camp.

Environment and heritage group An Taisce challenged a decision by An Bord Pleanala to give the green light to the scheme.

However, this was dismissed in the past hour.
