THE timing of the coalition climbdown on pylons is convenient to say the least.
Just months out from the local elections the Government was facing a massive revolt against EirGrid's plans to erect 1,500 pylons, threatening to become the dominant issue of the campaign.
The fallout from the escalating pylons crisis even hit Mr Kenny's backyard last weekend with a prominent Fine Gael councillor in Mayo resigning from the party.
