PROTECT DUBLIN BAY – NO OIL RIGS ON OUR COAST!
Tony O’Reilly’s Providence Resources wants to drill for oil in Dublin Bay, just 6km off the Coast of Dalkey Island. Providence Resources have applied for a foreshore licence to the Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan, who will decide on this, in the coming weeks or months.
If Providence Resources get a licence it will mean oil rigs in Dublin Bay for the next five or six years and if they do find oil or gas, it will mean the full industrialisation of our bay for the coming decades.
There will be a public meeting about this in the Kozie II Pub, 73 upper Georges St. Dun Laoghaire Co. Dublin on Tuesday 8th May at 6.30 pm. All are welcome.
