This amazing image by Sean Fitzgerald shows the ancient Ulster 'land goddess' Macha/Banba embodied at Knock Iveagh, where 6,000 years ago a Neolithic burial cairn was built. Now stabbed in the heart by an unlawful wind development & embodying #systemfailni #greed #nolan

Disgraceful. But keep fighting for what is right.

Nail. On. Head.
Why more public money is being wasted on defending a court case rather than using it to repair the damaged landscape and emotional hurt caused by a wind turbine located in a completely inappropriate location.

Very grateful to @foe_ni for turning up at the court to support us today. The historic environment *is part of* our environment, & is protected under environmental legislation! #saveknockiveagh @NicholaMallon
1/2 How's your morning going? Deeply frustrating to be left standing in the lobby (ABC lawyers didn't come back to us until 9.42pm last night & we had to be named on court list cos covid!)... THEN WE LEARNED that @abcb_council & @deptinfra are STILL playing us >>>

Is this the kind of 'accountability' we hear #Stormont Ministers talk about? Where WE PAY ❗'Professional Planners' who can't do their jobs properly, ❗Unlawful Developers & ❗Lawyers whose job appears to be to distract the public & kick the can down the road indefinitely?

It's all a profitable game to the lawyers and the Council don't care because the rate payer is stumping up. Will be interesting to see the bill. There's nothing Super about our Councils. Not working for benefit of the people. Too powerful/unaccountable and want still more power.

Yes, my thoughts in a nutshell. All the publicity and image and none of the practical support or help.
These picturesque photos appear to show a Minister who cares about heritage, yet sadly not a 👀 from Ms Mallon about Knock Iveagh on her visit to South Down! Our #sharedheritage is more than a photo opportunity :( @deptinfra will be back in court this Monday @1030am

Fantastic to be back down at Narrow Water with @DarraghOBrienTD to update local stakeholders on the work being undertaken at pace to deliver the iconic Narrow Water Bridge. The SDLP won't be prevented from progressing transformative north south projects. infrastructure-ni.gov.uk/new…

When it comes to 'cross border cooperation', what about our shared N/S heritage? @noonan_malcolm?
