32.—(1) Any person may object to an application to the Court for the grant of a certificate under section 11 (which relates to the renewal of licences) of the Spirits (Ireland) Act, 1854 , in relation to any premises on the ground of the unfitness of the premises to be licensed and, subject to subsection (2) of this section, if the Court is satisfied that the premises are unfit to be licensed, it may refuse to grant the certificate.

(2) An objection under this section shall not be entertained by the Court unless notice in writing of the intention to make the objection together with particulars in writing of the unfitness alleged is given not less than twelve months before the hearing of the application to the person who, at the time of the giving of the notice, holds the licence in respect of which the application is brought.
