East Clare Locals Outline Opposition To Planned Wind Farm Development

A group of residents near Ogonnelloe are vowing to fight plans for a major wind farm to be developed there.

Coillte is planning to invest around €150 million euro in the development, which is to be located close to Moylussa, the county’s highest point.

It’s set to include up to 25 wind turbines, but locals say they’ll oppose it, amid concerns about the impact of any such development on the environment, health and tourism in the wider East Clare region.


Pat O’Callaghan has lived in the area for over forty years.
