Listen: Former Environment Minister Denis Naughten Says Closure Of Two ESB Power Stations Is Disastrous For Staff.

: 11/09/2019 - 12:58

 

The closure of two ESB power stations in the midlands is as bad for rural Ireland as Google pulling out of Dublin.

That's according to former environment minister Denis Naughten, after the ESB announced it's shutting the Shannonbridge and Lanesboro plants next year.

It says they're no longer viable because planners rejected a proposal for them to switch from peat to biomass.

Denis Naughten says it's a disaster for the 80 staff.
