Supporting the Save our Skibbereen group, Jeremy Irons sends a message of support in advance of a well attended public meeting at the West Cork Hotel on 12th July
“My God we need jobs in Skibbereen; but let us not desecrate this jewel of an area by allowing polluting manufacture to poison our environment.
Let us question the process of democratic planning before we force the children and adults of Skibbereen to live their lives beneath a toxic plume, while outsiders manufacture a product which much of the world is trying to cut down on.
Let us show we wish to be at the forefront of a sustainable and environmentally friendly economy, rather than trailing along as the “trash can” of Carbery. ”
