The Gas Bubble

Dear Editor

Dear Editor

As one of “those people” (referred to in your letter page) who use every opportunity to alert Ireland to the danger of Fracking, of course we have to avail of every opportunity presented to us. Our opponents have a budget which would comfortably run a Government Department or two and we have not. Interestingly the EU estimate of European gas available falls far short of the estimate given by the Gas Industry. Here, what started out as a gas field extending throughout Leitrim into Sligo, Fermanagh and even Donegal, seems now to have contracted to an area on the side of Turk Mountain.

The next Irish Bubble, if we are fool enough to permit it, could well be a Gas Bubble. Only this time we could be left with a permanently polluted water supply, affecting Agriculture and Tourism, instead of just some unfinished houses.

Yours etc.
