Poll: Should Ireland consider nuclear power?

Britain is building a new nuclear reactor to provide electricity for homes – but should Ireland follow suit?

BRITAIN HAS TODAY unveiled plans to build its first new nuclear reactor in two decades which will provide electricity for 7 per cent of the population.

While other countries have turned to nuclear power as an alternative to fossil fuel, there are currently no plans for a nuclear reactor in Ireland in the near future. Critics cite safety concerns, while proponents argue it is a practical option in the face of finite resources of coal and oil.

What do you think – should Ireland consider nuclear power?
