A HIGH Court JUDGE has described the illegal dumping of thousands of tonnes of waste near the shores of Lough Swilly as one of the most “egregious cases” he had witnessed during his time on the bench.
Mr Justice Max Barrett was speaking on Tuesday after granting Donegal County Council Interlocutory Orders against two waste companies and one individual allegedly involved in the operation at Rossbracken, Manorcunningham.
