  • Businessman Jim Kennedy and his company Jackson Way Properties (JWP) have lost a High Court challenge over a refusal to provide information about land in Carrickmines, south Dublin.
  • Ms Justice Niamh Hyland dismissed an appeal by JWP and Mr Kennedy against a January 2019 decision of the Information Commissioner backing Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council’s refusal to provide information held by it.
  • In February 2017, Mr Kennedy and JWP had made a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the council for copies of all records it held relating to JWP, its property, any burdens affecting title and any claims for compensation alleged to affect its land.
