Opposition has been growing following the announcement that fracking company Tamboran are to begin test drilling at a site in Belcoo in the coming weeks to give them more information on natural gas here. 

A statement on the ‘Belcoo Frack Free’ Facebook page read:

“Thank you so much to those who organised and are currently taking part in the Anti-Fracking tractor run from Belcoo to Enniskillen. Such a tremendous show of solidarity and support from surrounding villages with both cross-border and cross-community representation.

“Almost 140 vehicles that took over 12.5 minutes to pass the gates of the site. It was emotional for those of us watching to see the mountain of support behind us, with the backdrop on one side of the hostile site gates and on the other, one of the most beautiful views in Ireland.

“Keep the faith everyone and keep demanding what we all want – a ban to fracking anywhere in this country – including exploration.”
