East Clare Locals Concerned Over Planned Windfarm

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 residents are worried about the impact on health, the environment, and the local economy as a result of the project. Gavin Grace went to East Clare where he spoke to those affected. Then he put their concerns to Carol Ryan from Coillte. Listen back below:
