Incinerator Opponents To Protest During Royal Visit

Incinerator Opponents To Protest During Royal Visit

Campaigners against the proposed €160 million waste incinerator for Ringaskiddy will use Prince Charles’s visit to the Irish Naval Service HQ at Haulbowline tomorrow to highlight their opposition to the unpopular incinerator plans.

Many opponents of the incinerator have, in the last few days, appealed for people to join them in a peaceful protest against the incinerator which they plan to hold in Ringaskiddy on as Prince Charles passes through the village.

One opponent, Ms Gertie O’Driscoll said she had already spoken to Gardaí about the planned protest and they had no issue with it once it was peaceful and silent.

Speaking, Gertie said, “The media of the world will be there for Prince Charles’s visit including his visit to Haulbowline and we want to show them that the people of Ringaskiddy and the people of Cork Harbour do not want this incinerator and it has been granted despite our opposition,”

Following three public meetings since the An Bord Pleanála decison granting permission for the incinerator was announced, CHASE  (Cork Harbour Alliance for a Safe Environment) have raised over €53,000 to fund a judicial review, the estimated cost of which is €150,000 to €200000.
