The deadline for consultation on the proposed Shannon-Dublin pipeline is just days away.

The deadline for consultation on the proposed Shannon-Dublin pipeline is just days away.

The deadline for submissions on the Shannon-Dublin pipeline will close on February 14th.The pipeline has divided the public from the outset with many saying it takes resources from rural Ireland.

MEP Luke Ming Flanagan strongly opposes the pipeline, citing the undeniable fact that it is ‘taking a resource that we [rural Ireland] have, and bringing it to Dublin’. When asked if the pipeline showed favouritism for urban Ireland over rural Ireland, 69% of our readers said yes in a recent poll.

A major fear of those opposing the Irish Water-managed pipeline is that it could potentially be privatised in the future. When asked if the pipeline’s privatisation was a worry, the split almost went straight down the middle. The readership is divided on the matter, with 52% saying it does worry them and 48% saying otherwise. Therefore the majority, albeit not an overwhelming one, believe that it could be an issue.

The pipeline will be 170km long and will cost around €1.2 billion. It is said the pipeline is needed to secure water for the ever increasing urban population in the countries east. The pipeline will affect 500 farmers and cross the counties of Tipperary, Offaly and Kildare before reaching Dublin.
