Carnsore Point, Wexford, proposed home of Ireland’s first nuclear plant and birthplace of the modern ecological movement here. Also the start of Brendan Howlin’s career in politics. Back when he was knee high to a grasshopper.
This might jog your memory.
Alternatively, watch O’Smugaidh from the ESB confidently predict an Irish nuclear future on RTE in 1974.
THIS weekend sees The Point Festival and Carnsore Summer School, a gathering of the good the bad and the green (see below), to discuss ‘Climate Change: Myth and Reality’. We shall also be there in a minor pro-climate, probably anti-cilamctic role.
