Protest against EirGrid power work

Work on one of the country’s most vital energy projects is under threat as protesters plan a picket that could spark massive disruption.

Residents in Rush, north Co Dublin, will step up their campaign as EirGrid begins routing a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) power line through the town.

Some have vowed to block roads during a massive rally as contractors for the State-backed scheme, which will link power supplies between Wales and Meath, move in at dawn on Wednesday.
