35,000 submissions made to pylon public consultation

The extent of the public's anger on pylons has become apparent this evening with the revelation that a whopping 35,000 submissions have been made during the public consultation.

Minister Rabbitte said he expects to be able to make a Dáil statement on the public consultation by the end of the month.
