People power has prevailed on the pylon issue according to James Kelly Independent Candidate in the Borris In Ossory/Mountmellick area.
Mr Kelly said There are a number of major issues that have been related to him on the doorstep such as, housing, anti-social behaviour, hospital waiting times, unfinished Estates etc. Another issue ‘frequently mentioned’ are concerns about the environment and Eigrid’s pylon plan.
“Thankfully people power has prevailed and an Independent Investigation into putting pylons underground has been approved. It was great to witness the communities affected rally together to oppose the construction of massive pylons and all the hard work has paid off,” he said.
