Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

DUBLIN: Ire­land on Thurs­day gave the green light for tech giant Ap­ple to build an 850-mil­lion-euro ($1.0-bil­lion) data cen­tre fol­low­ing a bat­tle with con­ser­va­tion­ists who were seek­ing to pre­serve a for­est.

High Court judge Paul McDer­mott dis­missed the ap­peals brought by three cam­paign­ers, who were con­cerned about the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of the project, which is to oc­cupy nearly 166,000 square me­ters in County Gal­way, west Ire­land.

The project, which was first an­nounced more than two-and-a-half years ago, would be the big­gest pri­vate in­vest­ment in west­ern Ire­land. — AFP
