The Gleneagle Hotel Ltd, whose owners operate the INEC arena and the Killarney Convention Centre in Killarney, has lodged notice of motion papers with the High Court challenging the funding arrangements for the proposed new Cork Evrnt Centre.
A €50m State funding package was recently announced.
It is the latest obstacle to hit the delivery of the stalled 6,000-capacity entertainment venue, which had its sod turned in 2016.
Gleneagle Group CEO Patrick O’Donoghue is named as the deponent.
The matter is listed for preliminary hearing on February 14.
An Bord Pleanála has yet to issue its decision on foot of an appeal against the city council’s grant of planning for the venue.
