Is the venue being paid for by someone other than the council? Crying poormouth and then booking the most expensive venue in the county is a bit rich,is’nt it?
For anyone who doesn’t already know this shows that our Local Authority is a willing tool of Government. Reminds one of the VEC hosting the Uranium companies back in 1980.
Then every attempt was made to snuff out opposition just as today a similar situation exists with regard to industrial wind projects.
Silence is golden for politicians.
Wow…has DCC finally seen the light? Not a mention of the UNSUSTAINABLE renewable energy they have been peddling for too many years, ie on-shore inefficient wind turbines.
Good to see our council slumming it in the Solis Lough Eske – only 5 star good enough for the council employees and councillors. Is this where our household charge is going?
I see ‘our’ H and BNB Council are hosting a conference. Presumably it is about Hypocrisy and Brass Neck Behaviour. A five star hotel, septic tanks, and the need for lots of water, all ‘spring’ to mind. Seemingly anything destructive will be entertained.
It has been explained to me that the reason for the 5 star treatment is to impress possible investors/developers/speculators.These people have shown a callous disregard for the people of Donegal up to now.Would it not be better to spend the money on the resources, renewable resources, that we already have, eg our landscape, our welcoming behaviour towards decent people,our fishing resources, bird watching, horse riding, hill walking, cycling trails, our folklore, music and song,our creative arts. The list is seemingly endless.We need to waken up and smell the stench of corruption.To remove our landscape for fracking purposes or for wind turbines, just for some momentary gain for a few speculators, is madness.
I would not be so quick to welcome offshore wind and wave projects. These are equally damaging to marine environments as onshore energy projects are. Fish numbers will be affected and pollution will be the result not to mention the effect the visual intrusion would have on coastal properties. I wonder is the Council hosting this conference inland and on the same day as the Glenties Harvest Fair in an attempt to avoid having wind energy protestors attend the Conference?
