Eirgrid deadline fast approaching - McGrath

Independent TD Mattie McGrath has called on residents of South Tipperary to be mindful that the deadline for public submissions in relation to Eirgrid’s controversial Grid Link Project is fast approaching, on January 7th. Deputy McGrath was speaking after another effort to galvanise support in opposition to the construction of the 140ft overhead pylons in some of South Tipperary’s most beautiful and agriculturally important land: “The efforts by the people of South Tipperary have been magnificent and have been instrumental in gaining this deadline extension from Eirgrid. I am appealing to everyone concerned and to all those who may have put the issue off, to re-engage with this hugely important opposition movement. The deadline is the 7th of January and I can think of fewer ways that we can all make such a great start to the New Year than by helping to protect the cultural, tourist and agricultural heritage of South Tipperary. This is an issue which if left unopposed would have caused lasting and permanent damage to the fabric of rural and urban life in South Tipperary. If Eirgrid believe even for a moment that opposition in South Tipperary is waning then we can be sure they will redouble their efforts to get this project through. If anyone needs help with a submission they can call my office for a document that will assist them,” concluded Deputy McGrath.
