Check out the Impact Research Group’s new site http://shalegasresearchireland.wordpress.com/about/ and their new report on Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Industry and the Shale Gas Question. This study presents an industry snapshot, focusing on the Dairy and the Infant Milk Formula sectors as examples.
The Impact Research Group is not a campaigning group. Our aim is to help inform the debate concerning Shale Gas for Ireland, and to widen the economic context in which the debate is taking place. We set ourselves the task of examining the particular economic and employment conditions in Ireland, and what impact the proposed shale gas hydraulic fracturing might have.
