Irish Independent - 10-05-07
They have not gone away

Dear Editor,

Listening to the Radio to-day I heard Michael Ahern F.F. of East Cork stating that Government waste Policy did not include commercial incineration, or words that conveyed this case. Could he please clarify this policy to the public ASAP, as many people around Cork and its harbour have put their lives on hold for six years campaigning, while very brave people are going to court in an effort to secure the health and safety of their families, and their communities.

The only reason this toxic incinerator is not in Cork Harbour is this Court case, and not as Mr. Michael Ahern states that Indaver have gone away. That was a cruel April Fool’s joke, with Mr. John Ahern stating 4 days later that “of course he had not gone away”, he was coming back when the climate was more favourable for his tolling industry.

To give the impression that the incineration question can be dismissed is political tactics, and intended to diminish public concerns.

M. Bowen,
Co. Cork.
