There is an awareness group in North Westmeath if anyone is interested -https://www.facebook.com/coolewindfarm/

in years from now the countryside will be just a giant battery of turbines and solar panels to power data centres .

one of the landowners is James Reynolds . I wonder how much money he's getting out of that .

IF this was your sister or daughter how would you feel . The UN and EU are to blame for this girls murder too , they told all these people to come to europe and continue to do so even if it means people are killed and murdered , to them it doesn't matter so long as they get their New Europe or "paneuropa" . And all these so called human rights activists working for all these migrant NGOs are also to blame for this girls death , so long as they can feel better about themselves

rule 5.1.4 of the FAI governance handbook says .. "the Association shall require that its Members be and remain, neutral in matters of politics and religion" ... surely aligning yourself with a trade union is a breach of that rule https://www.fai.ie/sites/default/files/atoms/files/FAI%20Handbook.pdf

fundamentally , unite is a political movement , it lobbies for political changes on a range of societal issues , so Rovers is involving itself in politics by partnering with it .

the selling point to parents is that is just fun educational tools to help their childs education . the real motive is recruitment . gradually they will introduce the child to Unite and get the child involved over time in its activities , before long parents have a full blown communist on their hands and once someone goes down that road its very hard to get them back.
