This is a matter of major public health concern. There should be no change to practices within Irish Cement unless or until these concerns are addressed by the company,” he added.Cllr McCreesh also maintains that Irish Cement “need to come out of hiding and demonstrate respect for local people and their concerns”.“We need more than press releases from Irish Cement,” he concluded.A spokesperson for Irish Cement responded: “Irish Cement has not received any correspondence from elected representatives in this regard.”by Alan [email protected] WhatsApp Previous articleMinister mistakes media coverage for progressNext articleWhy is Culture House closed to the public?
