A Triumph for the people of Kildysart – BREEN

January 29th, 2010 - Pat Breen

“A triumph for the people of Kildysart” is how Fine Gael’s Deputy Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs and Clare T.D. described the decision by Clare County Council not to grant planning permission to Hutchinson 3G Ireland to erect a mast in the village of Kildysart.

Urging the Company not to appeal the decision, Deputy Breen said; “The people in Kildysart are not against technology, it was the location which was the problem. Now that the Local Authority has made a decision, I hope that Hutchinson 3G Ireland will not appeal against the decision and that instead, they will sit down with the local people and local public representatives to discuss alternative options.”

“Communication and dialogue with the local people is the way forward, not confrontation.”
