Nenagh to be Connected to the Natural Gas Network

The Commission for Energy Resolution (CER) has approved the connection of Nenagh to the natural gas network. Last December we reported how Natural Gas was within touching distance for Nenagh and now John Barry, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Bord Gais Eireann has confirmed the connection.

Nenagh Chamber of Commerce President Tom Ryan welcomed the decision saying "the availability of natural gas to the town should also benefit the greater Nenagh region". He went on to thank the Nenagh Gas Committee and in particular Minister of State Alan Kelly and North Tipperary County Manager Joe MacGrath. Mr. Ryan said the "Nenagh Chamber of Commerce believes that this will help to copper fasten and potentially grow employment in the town".

Minister of State Alan Kelly who was responsible for the setting up of the Nenagh Gas Committee was equally jubilant at having gas in Nenagh by the third quarter of 2014. He expects local businesses to save between €20 - €30 million in energy costs in the first five years of supply and also sees it as a major reason for investment in the area.
