“Obtrusive” windfarm rejected  

A proposed windfarm on the 523 metre Arroo Mountain, the most northerly summit in the Dartry Mountains area near Kinlough, has been rejected by An Bord Pleanala.

The Board upheld a decision of Leitrim County Council last November to refuse permission for the windfarm. It found that the development, comprising of 12 turbines measuring 80m in height and with rotor blades measuring 45m in length, would be a prominent and obtrusive feature in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, would be highly visible locally and would spoil the view.

The company proposing the development are Leckanarainey Windfarm Limited, Old Schoolhouse, Lower Rosses, Rosses Point, Co Sligo.
