Developer Sean Mulryan appeared before the banking inqury. During this testimony he was asked about his relationship with elected officials in Wicklow County Council along with County Council officials. In particular Cllr Pat Vance and the County Manager who was Eddie Sheehy.
He denied knowledge of a contract document which agreed the use of 20 acres of land that was zoned for social housing. This land was instead to be used for a road way to his development in Charlesland.
The signatures of this document were Sean Mulryan, Sean Dunne, Cllr Pat Vance & the County Manager who Eddie Sheehy at the time.
This agreement to contravene the county development plan was made in a meeting between these four. This agreement under section 183 of the local government act must be made by the entire council in a vote. This was not done in this case and the entire council members were not aware of the agreement at the time.
Deputy Joe Higgins tried to ask about the cozy relationship between the developer, elected officials and Council officials but is repeatedly stopped by inquiry chairman Labours Ciaran Lynch who claims it is outside the inquirys terms of reference even though this type of questioning has been permitted on several occasions with many other witnesses appearing before the inquiry.
