IRELAND BANNED FRACKING!
From the people to the President in 6yrs. Onshore fracking officially banned today!
Congrats everyone! Now we move on to offshore and stopping the planned LNG plant which would import fracked gas from U.S. into North Kerry.
A grassroot campaigner: "I just want to pass on my thanks to you for all your amazing work over the past six years. The Fracking Free Ireland website was an invaluable source of information, your newsletters always well presented, punctual and informative and your networking helped bring so many people together. S0 glad that the government *finally* saw sense and did the right thing by introducing a ban, even if it didn't cover offshore. Wish the campaign hadn't dragged on for so long, though, but hey we got there in the end and that's all that matters.Becoming the third country in the world to ban fracking is a massive achievement, and without the strong grassroots campaigning it would never have come about as you know well yourself."
