Earlier this week Tipperary TD Michael Lowry demanded that the ‘prevailing veil of secrecy’, on issues regarding the imminent closure of Lisheen Mine, must now be discussed openly. To date it would appear his warning on this serious issue has received no support from current government elected representatives and he remains, to quote the Prophet Isaiah, the sole “voice crying in the wilderness”, with regard to his demands that State Agencies come forward to play a real meaningful role in directing alternative industry to this well appointed and ready equipped 1200 acre mine site.

The silence locally, on radio, TV and in the press is deafening.
From as yet unconfirmed information made available to Thurles.Info, we glean that at least 160 current full time employees of Lisheen Mine are expected to loose their jobs prior to Christmas 2015.
