Public meeting – Brollagh

The current plans for fracking in Fermanagh include up to sixty frack pads, approximately one mile apart, covering 40,000 acres, with a real possibility that the development may extend to three times the size. To find out more about the proposals and their implications for our county, come along to a public meeting at 8 pm on Monday, 5 November at St Mary’s High School, Brollagh, Belleek. The meeting will provide facts and information about shale gas extraction and its effects upon agriculture, tourism, jobs, water and air quality, fishing and human and animal health. The guest speaker will be Eddie Mitchell, a local farmer and builder, who is currently completing his Master’s degree in energy management and focusing his dissertation on unconventional gas extraction in the north-west of Ireland. All are very welcome to what we expect to be a fascinating and eye-opening evening.
