Sinn Féin call on Keegan to withdraw comments- Cllr Chris Andrews

24 August, 2015

Dublin Sinn Féin city councillor Chris Andrews has called on the council CEO Owen Keegan to immediately withdraw comments allegedly made about elected representatives in a letter to the company behind the Poolbeg incinerator project.

Speaking today Cllr Andrews said:

“Elected councillors voted against this project as was within our mandate.

“There is considerable opposition to the building of an incinerator at Poolbeg and it is the democratically elected city council rather than the appointed City Manager who ought to have the final say on this project.

“This project has been opposed for eight years now and it wasn’t just the so called “anti- government” parties who opposed this project in the past.

“Mr Keegan’s comments were disingenuous and I urge on him to withdraw them immediately.”
