Love Leitrim welcomes Shannon LNG High Court ruling

The High Court have quashed all planning permission for the Shannon LNG project which would have seen Ireland become a European hub for the importation of fracked gas.

The Community anti fracking group, ‘Love Leitrim’ have welcomed the ruling.

The move follows the banning of Fracking in Ireland in 2017 following a bill which was brought before the Dáil by the former Sligo Leitrim TD Tony McLoughlin.

The Love Leitrim chairperson is Jamie Murphy . . . he says this finally provides closure to a long running saga.
