Dear ****** and ****,

My brother (Gerald) recently forwarded a letter to me which originated in the European Parliament.

Among other things, it mentions the ESB pylons planned for the Loughrea area: which Galway County Council has ALREADY granted planning permission for.

If you consider it appropriate, please ensure that local objectors to these pylons know of the fact that the European Commission is aware of this particular ESB project, and that it has offered what I regard as some very useful guidance for local people who are being affected.

Please see copy of e-mail below (to Nature Ireland and Irish Green Party members).

Best regards,

Billy.

From: "Billy Finnerty" <billyfinnerty1945@hotmail.com>

To: Group of people who lived in East Galway during the years 1958 to 1963 at St Joseph's College, Garbally Park, Ballinasloe, County Galway (i.e.past pupils). 

     
  The huge set of stone steps at the northern end of the Broad Walk on Garbally College grounds lead onto one of the limbs of the Esker Riada

Ten miles or so to the west, and also very close to the same limb of the Esker Riada, there is a similar style of house known as Woodlawn House. Both of these "big houses" are very closely connected with the Trench Family, and with the titles Earl of Cloncarty (Garbally), and Lord Ashtown (Woodlawn).

The Trench family is sometimes associated with certain crucial events (on the battlefield) connected with the Battle of Aughrim which was fought on July 12th 1691, and which is regarded by many as the bloodiest and most decisive battle in the recorded history of Ireland.

The phrase "putting the boot in" may have originated as a result of a member of the Trench family placing his boot under the wheel of the cannon (to get a better firing angle) which decapitated St Ruth (the French Commander in charge of Catholic Army on that particular day).

 
     

Subject: Your e-mail letter (of March 12th 2003)

Date: Tue April 1 2003

Dear ***,

Thank you for your kind letter, and sorry about my delay in answering.

I recently received some interesting information from the European Parliament regarding problems I related to them many months ago which they have labelled "Petition 809/2001".

It looks to me as though there are some very competent and responsible people within the EU (not many perhaps, and not nearly enough in my view!) who are trying - with considerable success - to produce a new type of European legal system which puts the very basic needs and rights of the individual human being first - as opposed to those of big business, big government, big profits, and so on:  i.e. the "big ego" feeding approach which, among other things, seems to me to inevitably end up with the big bombs we see being used to sustain the Wild West "cowboy" style of high-handed "Gun Law" which the unlucky masses of ordinary people in places like Iraq are being subjected to at the present time.

Point 3 of ANNEX IV (of the EU 85/337/EEC Directive on Environment ) is particularly interesting from my viewpoint: and indeed - I think? - for EVERYBODY living in the EU area who is concerned about the protection of their local environment.

There is a link at the page address below (at the very end in the Green Nature Ireland e-mail section) which takes you to the EU text of Annex IV - via the page containing the information I recently received from the European Commission.

I hope this finds you well.

Best wishes,

Billy.
