"I think this actually
understates the problem. In my experience the legal profession are the ones
covering up the problem, not simply standing by. It is not a matter of
certain cliques putting themselves above the law, it seems that there are two laws, one for them and
one for us. Government is using the law to prevent people gaining justice.

Dear Mr Cashman,
I have recently
received reports via the Internet which indicate you are at present working on
matters relating to the "non-implementation" of the Aarhus Convention
Agreement by the Republic of Ireland, and that the Republic of
Ireland can soon expect to be in receipt of a "final warning" letter
from the European Commission regarding this particular
Although I have long ago lost count of the number of times I
have tried to raise the "Aarhus Convention Agreement" issue outlined below
(regarding the "Kilconnell SuperDump" in County Galway) during recent
years - with various people in the European Parliament, Commission, and
Council - I can find no evidence in the reports I have recently
received (relating to your work) that you are at all aware of the problem I have
outlined in an Indymedia Newswire publication this morning - which
is reproduced below, and which is self-explanatory I
wishes by W.

This looks like a really good idea to me - particularly when it seems to
be very much in keeping with the United NationsAarhus Convention
Agreement principles - which the Republic of Ireland signed in 1998.
(Some basic information on this unusually important and socially benign
international agreement can be found at http://www.finnachta.com/TheAarhusConvention.htm )
In case The Irish Environmental Forum might
not be fully aware of the situation, please note that outline information on
some really dreadful wrongdoing by senior public officials - in the form of an
application for Legal Aid dated November 3rd 2004 by a young law
student (Ms Ann Marie Kelly), who is a neighbour of mine in County
Galway, and which relates to a truly MASSIVE piece of undermining of
the Aarhus Convention Agreement, can be viewed at the following
Some may also be interested to
know that Ms Kelly's application for Legal Aid, to challenge the huge
National Toll Roads / Greenstar rubbish dump in our community, was copied
to Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD, Prime Minister Bertie
Ahern TD, and Deputy Prime Minister Mary Harney TD - as can clearly
be seen at the address immediately above.
Sadly, and as
some readers will already know, all of the senior public officials concerned
appear to have completely ignored Ms Kelly's requests - with the result that the
huge National Toll Roads / Greenstar rubbish dump in Kilconnell - or
"The Kilconnell SuperDump" as it is normally referred to
locally - opened for business a few weeks ago.
More recently, and
as can be seen at the address provided immediately below, the matter of Ms
Kelly's application for Legal Aid has been mentioned in connection with the
European Court of Human Rights Case Number 25077/05 - under "Item
9)" in the e-mail sent yesterday to senior lawyer Robert McCartney QC
You may also wish to be informed that I wrote to lawyer Gearoid
Geraghty (Ballinasloe, County Galway) on December 21st 2004 with a
request to take legal action (on my behalf) against public officials (in the
Republic of Ireland) regarding the way they were ignoring the Aarhus Convention
Agreement. A copy of the letter text in question, together with a copy of the
associated Post Office "Registered Delivery" receipt can be seen
at the following address: http://www.constitutionofireland.com/FairMurtaghEmail21Dec2004.htm
For reasons which I trust you
(and others) will easily understand, it seems very important to me that I never
received any reply of any kind from Mr Geraghty to the letter reproduced at the
address immediately above - which, as can also be seen at the same address, was
copied to Margot Wallstrom (Vice President of EU Commission), Stavros Dimas
(EU Commissioner for Environment & Social Affairs), and Jose Manuel
Barroso (President of EU Commission).
With the European
Court of Human Rights Case Number 25077/05 in mind (referred to above), it would
be much appreciated if you could take very careful note of the information I am
providing you with in this e-mail, which I hope you will be able to let me have
an acknowledgement of receipt for as soon as you reasonably can
