Now that the start and finish points for the proposed new 110 kv power line that will run from Ballina to Ballaghadereen have been confirmed, Eirgrid must decide on the technology that will be used - such as underground or overground lines - and the path the 110 kv line will take, to provide an enhanced electricity supply across north Connacht.

The new power line will be also capable of taking newly-generated renewable energy from the region into the national grid.

Details of the plan, which replaces the controversial GridWest plan, were outlined by Eirgrid to councillors at the monthly meeting of Mayo Co Co earlier this week.

The company's office in Castlebar is also open to the public this week to provide further information on their plans.
