Subject: Re: Dump at Kilconnell
Dear Oonagh,
Thank you for contacting me.
One of the GREATEST difficulties we have locally is that we cannot get the Irish journalists (or editors I should say perhaps?) to write and talk about the CORE issues regarding the Celtic Waste dump planned for Kilconnell: i.e. things such as Article 28A of the Republic of Ireland Constitution, and the Aarhus Convention Agreement for example; and, of course, the way our Government, and our President, appear to be blatantly violating our Constitution regarding such matters.  To make matters far, far worse - they are getting away with it all, with the greatest of ease (so far at least). 
I did have a very quick try at making a small complaint to the media recently - which can be seen at Internet page location:
I think many in the media may be stuck myself ? - the whole thing may be much too big for them perhaps, and they don't know what to do?  There are really HUGE financial profits involved (potentially) in superdumps, incinerators, and toll roads - as well as some very large multi-national companies, banks, and so on. 
Any help you can give us - especially as a journalist - would be very much appreciated.
Best wishes,
Billy Finnerty.

Dear Mr Finnerty,
I hope you do not mind me contacting you in person. I was appalled today to see plans for a superdump in East Galway. While googling the web for more details I found your website (, and am wondering if there is anything I can do.
I am a journalist living in London, but I have family in East Galway and hope to move there in the next couple of years with my husband and little girl. I'm not sure what I can do, but I'd love to write a letter to relevant politicians or the EU or heritage bodies or sign a petition or do whatever I can. Perhaps I could write a piece for expat papers over here?
I look forward to hearing from you,
Oonagh Shiel.
