The local authority sought and was granted, a special injunction at Sligo Circuit Court last week to remove the marquee before any event could take place.

A newlywed couple, their parents and two local businesses are to appear before Longford Circuit Court this afternoon following a wedding party that breached a court order and Covid-19 health restrictions.

A large marquee was set up on council land adjacent to a halting site on the Strokestown road last week, with over 100 people attending a post wedding party, breaching the order obtained by Longford County Council to stop the event.

At a special sitting of the court last week, Judge Keenan Johnson branded the gathering as an 'outrageous and scandalous breach' of the court's ruling.
