Right decision by minister to block 'fracking' – Gildernew

11 August, 2014 - by Michelle Gildernew

Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has said the environment minister has made the correct decision in denying Tamboran a licence to carry out test drilling in Fermanagh.

Ms Gildernew said,

“The decision to deny Tamboran to begin deep bore test drilling in Belcoo Fermanagh is the correct decision giving the clear opposition to ‘fracking’ in the area.

“There has been universal support in opposition to fracking in County Fermanagh since Tamboran applied to begin test drilling.

“Sinn Féin has fully supported those involved in campaigning against fracking across Ireland.

“We congratulate all those in Belcoo who stood firm against this project.

 “The decision today is the correct one and it will give heart to communities right across this island who are opposed to fracking.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
