Troy ‘disappointed’ by refusal on windfarm moratorium

Longford-Westmeath Fianna Fáil TD Robert Troy has said he is extremely disappointed the Minister for Energy and Natural Resources has refused to consider implementing a moratorium on wind farms while a new national renewable energy strategy is developed.

Deputy Troy raised the issue directly with Minister Rabbitte in the Dáil in light of what he described as “widespread concern and anxiety among communities across the midlands” at the prospect of the largest wind farm in Europe being built in region.
