Sinn Féin remains opposed to fracking throughout Ireland - Dillon
Sinn Féin MLA Linda Dillon has said Sinn Féin remains opposed to fracking anywhere on the island of Ireland.
Ms Dillon said;
"The decision by the British Tory party today to approve controversial fracking projects in the north east of England shows its dogmatic commitment to dirty fossil fuels.
"For our part Sinn Féin remains resolutely opposed to fracking anywhere on the island of Ireland.
"We have consistently opposed fracking and will continue to do so.
"We must explore other forms of sustainable and renewable energies instead of being tied to outdated and environmentally damaging methods of the past."
