The controversial €500 million Eirgrid plan to construct a 250 kilometres above-ground network of pylons across rural areas of the country has provoked huge debate around safety and aesthetic issues – there have been 35.000 submissions to Eirgrid and today’s Examiner reports that 75% of Coalition TDs living along the proposed route say it would damage the landscape. Tonight’s Seacht La TG4’s current affairs programme has been talking to many of those involved in this issue and Páidí Ó Lionáird joined Sean from the Raidio na Gaelteachta studio in Cassla.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0121/499141-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-21-january-2014/?clipid=1398844
