High Court rules that government acted lawfully in providing travel advice

Ryanair DAC vs An Taoiseach [2020] IEHC 461

Judicial review proceedings – lawfulness of travel advice – whether separation of powers infringed – alleged mandatory language of advice – power to make legislation under s 31 Health Act 1947

On Tuesday 2 October 2020, Mr Justice Garrett Simons delivered judgment in proceedings taken by the appellant airline against the Government, which related to a series of statements advising members of the public against foreign travel. The application for judicial review was supported by Aer Lingus, who had been joined as a notice party. Prior to commencing our discussion of this case, it is worth repeating the point of the learned judge, who noted that the term ‘advice’ has been used throughout the judgment in a guarded sense, as it was a central contention of the appellant that public statements made by the Government were not actually advice but rather, amounted to a formal restriction on travel in a legal sense. The same caveat applies to this case note.
