With the deadline for public submissions in relation to Eirgrid’s controversial Grid Link Project fast approaching (target date January 7), Deputy Mattie McGrath is calling on people in his area to galvanise support in opposition to the construction of the 140 feet overhead pylons in some of South Tipperary’s most beautiful and agriculturally important land.
“The efforts to date by the people of South Tipperary have been magnificent and have been instrumental in gaining this deadline extension from Eirgrid. I am therefore appealing to everyone concerned, and to all those who may have put the issue off, to re-engage with this hugely important opposition movement to Eirgrid’s plans.
“As the deadline is the 7th of January, I can think of fewer ways that we can all make such a great start to the New Year. This is an issue that, if left unopposed, will cause lasting and permanent damage to the fabric of rural and urban life in South Tipperary.
“If anyone needs help with a submission they can call my office for a document that will assist them or they can go to my website or Facebook page where all the issues are discussed in detail,” concluded Deputy McGrath.
