A Kerry senator wants to open a debate on using nuclear energy.

Fianna Fáil senator Ned O’Sullivan has asked the Seanad to arrange for a debate on the issue in the Autumn session.

Senator O’Sullivan believes a number of factors raise the possibility of using nuclear power, such as changing public opinion on the energy source, the opposition to LNG and the proliferation of wind turbines.

He says a lot has changed over the decades.
