Communities located close to the proposed new North Connacht 110 KV power line are being encouraged to join a new community forum.
Eirgrid recently announced the preferred route for the undergrounds power cable, which will run from Ballina to Ballaghadereen.
The project will enhance the electricity network in the area, and connect new renewable energy into the national grid.
Eirgrid is now inviting groups and organisations from areas across Ballina, Foxford, Swinford and Ballaghadereen to join the community forum, and ensure the views of their communities are heard in relation to the project.
The forum will receive updates on the project, and will also oversee the implementation of a community benefit fund.
