Good Energies Alliance Ireland directors Aedín McLoughlin and Eddie Mitchell gave a presentation about fracking and its effects on the environment and human health in Enniskillen (Co. Fermanagh) on 1oth September.

The event was organised by Dianne Little, member of Letterbreen and Mullaghdun Partnership (LAMP). Dianne spoke about the social and psycological consequences of the oil and gas industry in rural communities.

The presentation aimed to encourage participants to act in their communities, organise meetings in their areas and try to spread awareness about what can happen to Fermanagh and their neighbourhoods if fracking begins.
