Advice to members regarding Tamboran’s Injunction

Tamboran have taken out an injunction covering activities at the Acheson & Glover quarry near Belcoo. Fermanagh Fracking Awareness Network is named in this injunction and therefore committee members and you as members of FFAN need to be aware of the consequences of any breach of the injunction. The injunction states that we are not to enter the quarry site, obstruct works, or interfere with the people carrying out works on behalf of Tamboran.
