Part Three reveals exclusively how EirGrid closely monitored media coverage of the North South interconnector in regional and national newspapers. Local media were chosen to place advertisements promoting the project and the company’s mobile information unit, the movements of which were regularly reported to the relevant government department.

EirGrid also noted developments in Northern Ireland involving their subsidiary, SONI, which received planning approval for the line in the North at the end of January. Statements from business interests north and south in support of the project were listed, but not reaction by the main group opposed to the project, Safe Electricity Armagh and Tyrone. EirGrid said there was nothing unusual or sinister in the extensive email correspondence revealed by The Northern Standard.
