Thousands of people from Meath, Cavan and Monaghan have taken part in a protest against proposed electricity pylons in the north east.

The protestors linked arms on the banks of the River Boyne this afternoon.

They are objecting to EirGrid's proposal to place 400 high power electric cables on pylons from Woodlands in Co Meath to Kingscourt in Co Cavan.
