National Pylons protest meeting in Cahir on Sunday

Independent TD Mattie McGrath has invited all constituents who are concerned at Eirgrid?s plans to construct pylons in South Tipperary to attend another in a series of protest meetings aimed at giving a voice to public concerns.

It takes place in the Community Hall, Cahir this Sunday, March 2 at 6pm

?These pylons will destroy the protected views of the Vee Valley, Knockmealdown, Comeraghs, Galtee Mountains and the famed Slievenamon right through to the High Crosses of Ahenny and will have a detrimental impact on our local Tourism Industry?, said Deputy McGrath.

He said they will also have an adverse impact on our equine/agricultural industries as well increasing the likelihood of childhood illnesses.

Guest speaker is Pat Swords.
