Poll: Are you concerned about plans to build more electricity pylons?

Plans have been criticised by people living in the areas concerned but Eirgrid and the government say the pylons are needed. What do you think?

PLANS FOR THE construction of huge electricity pylons across the country are coming under increased criticism with opposition groups planning a number of protests this year.

It has been argued that the pylons – to be built as part of three projects  - are needed to service the grid and for the creation of jobs and infrastructure. However those living in affected areas have voiced concern about potential impacts on the environment, their health and property prices.

We want to know: Are you concerned about plans to build more electricity pylons?
