It’s emerged that 150 Groups from Ireland and beyond have signed an open letter to Energy Minister Eamon Ryan, calling on him to confirm that he will not make any LNG U-turn on the current agreed government policy against the importation of fracked gas to Ireland.
Deep concern has been expressed in relation to reports which suggested that Green Party policy banning fracked gas terminals may be reversed.
The Green Party policy was a red line issue in the negotiations to enter coalition with Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil.
Jamie Murphy is the Chairman of the Anti fracking group Love Leitrim. He described the reaction as ‘unbelievable in such a short space of time.
He says it sends a clear message to the government that they need to stick to their policy of opposing LNG/Fracked gas terminals.
