On Tuesday 18th July éirígí Dublin Northeast Representative Ciaran Heaphey led a delegation of local residents at an information meeting regarding the proposed Clonshaugh Sewage Plant in the Hilton Hotel on the Malahide Road.
Speaking after the meeting Ciaran said: “I and several other residents attended the meeting in order to voice our objection to the building of this huge sewage plant. We voiced many of our objections and health and safety concerns to representatives of the proposed project. We also learned that the operating of this plant will be in private hands if built. This added further to our many concerns to the construction of this huge sewage plant.”
Ciaran continued: “There is huge opposition to the construction of this plant. At one of our weekly stalls last Saturday, several hundred people signed a petition objecting to the building of this plant. We in éirígí with our neighbours in the Coolock area will continue to monitor the progress of the planning of the plant and continue our opposition.”
