Bord Na Móna Plans To Develop Ireland's Largest Windfarm In The Midlands

The project involves 50 turbines, with an overall height of 720 feet.

Bord na Móna is planning to develop Ireland's largest windfarm in Offaly and Kildare.

The project involves 50 turbines, with an overall height of 720 feet.

Rural properties in the Allenwood,  Clonbullogue, Edenderry, Rathangan and Ticknevin areas are within 1 kilometre of the development.

The company says Community Engagement Clinics will be subject to COVID-19 restrictions and it hopes to lodge a planning application in 2022. 

If successful, it will be the third large wind farm in the locality, with Mount Lucas already operational and Cloncreen under development.
