McELVANEY SPEAKS OUT

Phoenix BW

HUGH MCELVANEY says there are still plenty of wind farm opportunities in Monaghan and warned potential investors not to be put off by RTÉ’s shenanigans. The ex-Fine Gael councillor caught out the national broadcaster in a reverse sting, showing them up as part of a genius double jeopardy plot.
But McElvaney is now concerned that those wishing to invest might not be so keen after seeing the programme. “The message I would have is that Monaghan is open for business,” he said. “Don’t pay any attention to that shower in Dublin. I am willing to offer my expertise in all areas of wind development, especially when it comes to hot air. People will recognise my ability to spin, so I could have those pylons turning 25 hours a day to maximise production. I think people will realise that this is a
unique opportunity. Call me.”
