Love Leitrim express concern over planned meeting between Tánaiste and Wesley Eden

Love Leitrim have expressed concern over the plans by Tànaiste Leo Varadkar to hold a meeting with the co-founder and Chief Executive of New Fortress Energy, Wesley Edens, in the next number of weeks.


New Fortress Energy, the parent company of Shannon LNG, is seeking to develop a liquified gas terminal (LNG) in the Shannon Estuary.


There have been long held concerns by communities both locally and nationally about the impact such a project would have on levels of methane emissions associated with LNG and fracked gas.


Love Leitrim Chairperson Jamie Murphy says There has also been real worry about a potential shift on government position on the issue of importing Fracked Gas into Ireland.
