No Irish submissions to EU consultation on potential pylon health risks

pylons

It's emerged that no submissions have been made from Ireland to a major EU consultation on the possible health implications of pylons.

Speaking after a meeting with EU Health Commissioner Tonio Borg, North West MEP Jim Higgins said he was told there had been a total of three submissions made to the study, none of which were Irish.

The closing date for submissions is mid April, and Jim Higgins is urging people to make submissions.

He says given that pylons are a contentious issue from West Donegal right down to the Comeragh Mountains in Waterford, and it's surprising there have been no submissions from this country...........
