The proposed development consists of approximately 21 wind turbines with a typical output of 5-6 megawatts - enough to supply around 85,000 Irish households with renewable electricity every year.
The development will give rise to a range of beneﬁts, including up to 100 construction jobs. It will also create permanent operation and maintenance roles, as well as ancillary functions.There will be a substantial community beneﬁt fund to help support local community projects and ensure that residents beneﬁt directly from the renewable energy development. The fund will be administered in accordance with Wind Energy Ireland (WEI - formerly IWEA) best practice and grants will be made available after one year of wind farm operation.
January update: Work is underway on the final turbine layout, based on continuing SI works and community feedback to date. We will consult widely on the final design, which will be made available to view on this website. For further information, please call our freephone helpline: 1800 140 232.
November update: Ground investigation works will start on site in November. These SI works will be carried out by specialist contractor, IGSL, working closely with planning and environmental consultants.
Autumn update: We have produced photomontages to provide a visual representation of what the wind farm would look like – based on the draft turbine layout. Photomontages are available to view here.

When can we see the planned wind farm layout?
We are now consulting the local community on the draft turbine layout, which you can view in more detail by clicking here and using the zoom control.
The draft plan is currently being reviewed and we will update and consult the community on the final site layout and make it available for public viewing on this website.
