Enda Kenny called on to show leadership on Corrib gas

Áine Ryan - Mayo News

If Enda Kenny wants to be Taoiseach, let him show his leadership qualities by addressing a bitter controversy in his own back yard, the protracted Corrib gas saga. That is the view of Labour town councillor, Harry Barrett, who yesterday told The Mayo News that ‘what has gone on in north Mayo, in the name of the State, has been an insult to democracy and the rights of the citizen under the constitution’.
“This controversy has gone on for far too long. Enda Kenny aspires to be leader of the country and this is on our own doorsteps and now needs to be resolved. We have a multi-billion euro resource on the edge of this county and we have had nothing but community turmoil over it,” said Cllr Barrett.
