Kenny: No point in Hogan meeting sewage plant protesters

Fiach Kelly Political Correspondent

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny says there is no point in the Environment Minister meeting objectors to a massive sewage treatment plant in Dublin.

Fingal County Council says it favours building the €500m plant in Clonshaugh on the capital's northside.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin urged the Government to meet with representatives of twelve-thousand people who object to the facility.

But Mr Kenny says the Environment Minister's only role is in funding and so him meeting with objectors would serve no purpose.
