Anti-pylon meeting on March 2nd

Independent TD Mattie McGrath has invited all constituents who are concerned at Eirgrid’s plans to construct monster pylons in South Tipperary to attend another in a series of protest meetings aimed at giving a voice to public concerns.

“These pylons will destroy the protected views of the Vee Valley, Knockmealdown, Comeraghs, Galtee Mountains and the famed Slievenamon right through to the High Crosses of Ahenny and will have a detrimental impact on our local Tourism Industry. They will also have an adverse impact on our equine and agricultural industries as well increasing the likelihood of childhood illnesses. In order to give the public a forum to debate these issues I am holding a Public Meeting on Sunday March 2nd in the Community Hall, Cahir at 6pm and would encourage everyone to please spread the word. Mr Pat Swords is my guest speaker and he will be there to explain the background and expose the totally spurious claims made by Eirgrid and other vested interests,” concluded Deputy McGrath. Mr Swords, who has advanced qualifications in Chemistry and Engineering, has brought a case before the High Court campaigning for citizens’ rights vis-a-vis high energy power lines.

Mr Swords has said he does not agree with the Irish countryside “being turned into a wind turbine and pylon hedgehog.”
