Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - County Donegal Generating Station.

asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state whether the E.S.B. have yet selected the exact site on which it is proposed to erect the turf fired generating plant at Gweedore, County Donegal; and, if so, where the plant will be located and when the work will commence.

I have been informed by the E.S.B. that the turf fired generating plant at Gweedore, County Donegal, will be located on the north shore near the exit of Lower Lough Nacung, where test borings are taking place at present. I have been further informed by the board that it is expected that work on the site will commence this summer.
