Green Party groups in the region have jointly written to An Bord Pleanála calling on the Shannon LNG terminal plan to be rejected.

Shannon LNG Ltd, a subsidiary of New Fortress Energy, currently has an application before the appeals board for a liquified natural gas terminal on the Tarbert Ballylongford land bank.

The chairs of the Green Party in Kerry, Limerick, and Clare recently made a submission on the proposal, which they say wouldn’t benefit North Kerry in the long term.

They believe the LNG terminal, if granted, could prevent the Shannon Estuary from becoming a renewable energy hub.

An Bord Pleanála is due to make a decision on the case next March.
