I'd struggle to be impartial on this one as I have a mental image of John Gormless and Eamon Nice But Dim in fits of apoplexy

Its a lot of money but its better than 4 or 5 landfills around the place. Are they going for the whole volume initially applied for or a smaller version? 16 yrs in the offing. Our planning system is definitely broken. NIMBYs and their pseudoscience are given too much airtime

The site for the incinerator is 800m from any human habitation from what I can tell.

The map below shows the parts of Ireland which are further than 750m from a dwelling. There are very, very few of them, given the amount of one-off houses.

Useful article, in the context of wind turbines, here: http://irelandafternama.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/wind-turbines-bill/

Did anyone else see on their website that they're proposing a "district heating" service for 50,000 homes? It appears to be a piped hot water system to nearby houses. Anyone know more? Sounds pretty cool, if real.

About 100 protesters, mainly residents from the Sandymount, Ringsend and Irishtown areas of Dublin, which lie in the site’s immediate vicinity, gathered outside Leinster House where they expressed determination to organise and step up their campaign.
Rory Hearne of the Combined Residents Against Incineration group said there were several reasons behind the prolonged opposition movement, including the prospect of severe local disruption of traffic.
