Dear members of the 31st Dáil Éireann,

In my last letter to you I discussed Tamboran's claim that almost as much gas could be recovered from the Laugh Allen Basin as from the 8 times larger Barnett Shale in Texas, US.

The following open letter concerning hydraulic gas fracturing in Ireland was recently sent to the Pat Rabbitte, Minister for Communications, Energy & Natural Resources. Several other people have written to the minister and have received no reply.
