gone up the Swanee.
No other objectors that I've spoken to would deny the need for progress but it's the manner in which this is being undertaken and the lack of willingness by Eirgrid to engage and investigate more progressive alternatives to ensure a safer ( the jury's still out on EMF's but caution is advised ) and less intrusive impact - especially in a country that depends so heavily on it's visual amenity to attract more tourism.
Eirgrid claim that their's is a 'green' solution but as far as I can see it's just pure vandalism.
Visual pollution!
