FIE supports the chorus of protests over the proposed ferry crossing of the Corrib, a scheme that threatens a remote and unspoiled rural area. Residents have found a 1996 Report on an earlier proposal which not only outlines the adverse impacts but predicts that a crossing of the Corrib at this point would serve no strategic value.
