ESB Stopped at Clonmore. Teresa Treacy still defiant.
national | environment | news report Saturday September 17, 2011 15:11 by Teresa Treacy Support Group.
"I'll never purge my contempt, and I want the ESB stopped. I most certainly do!" - message from Teresa Treacy, 65 years old, in Mountjoy Womens' Prison.
On Wednesday the 14th of September, concerned individuals wishing to support Teresa Treacy arrived at Clonmore, Tullamore. The following morning the supporters learned that no tree felling would be carried out that week and ESB workers had been instructed to leave the site.
It is the ESB's intent to fell trees covering a total 12 acres of land and amounting to 12,000 trees in all, many of which are native species and were hand planted and maintained by Teresa over the years. The end result being a 50m wide corridor permanently severing her woodlands in two for well over one kilometer. It is the intention of the ESB to fill the felling zone with one 20 metre high metal tower, five double wooden poles, a 110Kv single transmission line, and five continuous wires.
