On Tuesday, April 15th at 11.00am, all the groups will be joining together once again for a peaceful protest march from Parnell Sq in Dublin down to the Dail and we hope that everyone affected will make a concerted effort to join us in making a stand against the government in their plan to industrialize our counties.
Industrial Turbines, Pylons and Substations will change our country for generations to come. Ireland is renowned for its Green fields – not metal structures blighting our landscape and in close proximity to our homes.
The energy policy for Ireland is affecting thousands of residents. The Wind, Pylon and Substation groups are demanding a “Rethink” of this policy.
After the results of the Draft Guidelines proposing to keep the 500m setback distance that all groups were vehemently opposed to, as well as elections in May, it is vital that we use this opportunity to show the government and politicians what we are made of and that we wont be overlooked and brushed aside any longer!

Senator Thomas Byrne: will be attending rally in capital.

John Downing, Political Correspondent – Published 14 April 2014 02:30 AM

UP to 10,000 people are expected to march in a 'monster rally' uniting opponents of wind turbines and pylons.

Organisers of the combined rally are expecting several thousand people to gather in the heart of Dublin tomorrow.

Buses are being hired in the border, midlands, and western counties to bring people to Dublin for the protest march from Parnell Square to Leinster House on Kildare Street at 11am.

A new group 'Wind Aware Ireland', combining groups opposed to overhead high-power cables and accompanying pylons and those against wind farms, has been strongly lobbying politicians ahead of the May 23 local and European elections.

Fianna Fail candidate in the Midlands North West Euro constituency, Senator Thomas Byrne, yesterday said he will be attending the rally and he believed it will draw a huge crowd.

"People in the countryside and smaller towns feel their concerns are being ignored by this Government. I'm also very sceptical about Energy Minister Pat Rabbitte's sudden about-face on windfarms so soon before these upcoming elections," he said.

Another European Parliament candidate, Luke Ming Flanagan, said he believed there was a parallel between these two issues and the turf-cutting ban.

He said people were having policies and developments foisted upon them without their consent, and windfarms and pylons were evoking a larger opposition response around the country.

The event organisers hope that the Easter school holidays, which started last Friday afternoon in many schools, will help swell numbers at tomorrow's event.

Last Wednesday, the Government accepted a Sinn Fein bill for control of wind turbines, setting a strict set-back distance based on their height, but it is not clear how much further progress the draft law will make in the legislative process.
