Renehan v T& S Taverns Ltd t/a The Red Cow Inn [2015]

Posted In: Case Law
  • Case Reference
    IESC 8
  • Legal Body
    Irish Supreme Court (IESC)
  • Type of Claim / Jurisdiction
    Health and Safety
Issues covered: Negligence; Personal Injuries

The plaintiff was a security officer at the Red Cow Inn and was injured by a car. He did not sue the car owner, but his employer. The plaintiff was not employed by the defendant or on the premises at the time and, accordingly, the claim does not appear to be one based on either employers or occupiers liability, but rather is for negligence in the management of the business of the night club. The only issue at this point, is whether this case against this defendant, whatever its prospects of success, is barred by the provisions of the Statute of Limitations.
