County Manager could face jail if court order over Glendalough food row is not implemented

By: William O’Toole

The manager of Wicklow County Council could potentially face jail if he does not adhere to a court order relating to a dispute between two parties over trading locations at the upper car part at Glendalough.

Last month, James and Margaret Stakem, who have being trading in the car park for over 3o years, obtained a court order against the council alleging that they were not ensuring that Irish Popcorn and Snackfood Co Ltd were operating in their designated area of the car park.

They returned to court today after they claimed that the council had failed to implement the court order.

Peter Shanley BL, for the Stakems, told the court today that their had been “deliberate and conscious breach” of the court order over the weekend.

Speaking on behalf of the council, Carol O’Farrell BL, said that the council had apologised and were now compliant with the order.

However, Mr Justice Gilligan said that he wanted the Stakem’s lawyers to issue attachment and committal proceedings against the county manager.

Justice Gilligan also said that the application may not go ahead on Thursday if the council ensures that the order is adhered to fully.
