Against Municipal Dump near The Good Hatchery

    1. Petition by

      The Good Hatchery

      Offaly, Ireland

Down the road from The Good Hatchery a site which was formerly intended as a recycling centre has put in a planning application to develop a large scale municipal waste facility on the land. This development would have a huge negative impact on The Good Hatchery and the surrounding area.

The development is planned for Barnan, Rhode, Co. Offaly. The reprecussions for the local community here are devastating, water pollution from runoff, the smell,the increase in traffic,100 trucks a day which are allowed to carry 40tonnes. 50,000 tonnes of rubbish a year is the starting amount they have applied for per annum.

This is a unique landscape that plays an important role in Irish history and mythology as the site of the finding of the Croghan Man and other bog treasures. The area continues to inspire the many artist who continually visit The Good Hatchery.

This development would be to the detriment of all future development to The Good Hatchery and its contribution to the culture of contemporary visual arts in Ireland. It would also see the demise of a fascinating landscape that holds so much of our past in its grasp.

On signing this petition a copy will be sent to Mr. David Hogan of Offaly Co. Co. Environment Dept. and a copy to The Good Hatchery to use in support of the campaign in the coming weeks.

We would really appreciate your support!

many thanks,

The Good Hatchery

      As the Humyn-concept of economics which has sought dominance upon our lives is failing, at odds with the endeavors of world leaders, people are now turning to creativity and expression. Constantly there are new spaces for creative people being facilitated by passionate people. It is a huge mistake to plunder ahead blindly and in the process create a world-wide cultural Homogeneity. I fully support the rejection of a Environmental and Cultural extinction that yet another landfill is sure to create..any help i can be please let me know. love and respect. xx
