EPA on site with vehicles at Belcoo
EPA vehicle seen at the quarry, and WINDMILLS being put in at the back of the quarry. This means a whole load of vehicles going up and down that road, including big pieces of equipment. The majority of those vehicles have MITTEN on them, red lorries, using Mill Lane even to go up and down.
At a most successful meeting in Glenfarne last Saturday, attended by over 120 people, the case for opposing the so-called research study on fracking in Ireland coordinated by the EPA was made clear. The meeting started with a number of speakers giving the case for concern. This was followed by a panel discussion and plan of action.
