Residents allege damage to houses from children’s hospital works

High court action taken by residents living near site of new National Children’s Hospital

A High Court action has been lodged over alleged damage to houses located beside the site of the new National Children's Hospital in Dublin.

The proceedings have been taken by some residents of the O'Reilly Avenue, Ceannt Fort and Mount Brown areas and are against the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board and BAM Civil Limited, the firm which is building the hospital.

The residents claim their homes have been damaged as a result of certain works being carried out by the defendants.

The matter was mentioned before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan on Thursday evening when he granted lawyers for the residents permission to serve short notice of the proceedings on the defendants.


The judge has returned the matter to next week.
