Fianna Fail Councillor resigns from Environment Committee.

Fianna Fail Councillor John Brassil has resigned from the Environment Strategic Policy Committee after a blazing row with the Chairman Michael Healy Rae. The row stems from comments made by Cllr Healy Rae at a meeting on development levies organized by the IFA last week.Cllr Brassil accused his colleague of condemning any councillors who didn’t attend the meeting. On the same night, Cllr Brassil was chairing a seminar on the Shannon river basin which Cllr Healy Rae had passed up. The issue came up yesterday during a discussion on levies for quarries and developed into a shouting match between the two.
