Brendan Halligan is currently the Chairman of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
He is also a director of Mainstream Renewable Power, the company seeking to construct a huge wind project in the midlands. Business Profiles and Company Information | ZoomInfo.com
Is it not a bit dubious that the Chairman of a government body which issues reports on the (in) effectiveness and virtues (sic) of wind energy also directs a private company which seeks to benefit from the content of these reports ?
He was also the Chairman of Bord Na Mona when it was run like a Soviet style agency in the 1980's.
We have seen wind farms around the country sold (dumped) to semi-state bodies like Bord Gais for huge sums in the past.
After a little research I found that he would of had to issue a Statement of Material Concern take the directorship. However the general public has no right to see this document. Does anyone know how this document and it's contents can be verified by an independent source ?
Brendan has some CV it must be said.

However asking the fox to mind the chicken coup only works out for the fox.
And no I will not end my OP with the cliche "Banana Republic" as that would be an unprovoked insult to the good people of Honduras.
