When contacted by the Longford Leader, a spokesperson for Bord na Mona said the company is conducting tests in the area as part of standard exploratory works.

“The proposed mast is being erected as part of an initial assessment procedure examining the suitability of the lands for possible wind farm development,” the spokesperson explained.

However, the spokesperosn also emphasised that it does not mean Bord na Mona has definitive plans to construct a wind farm at the southwest Longford site.

“This assessment procedure is standard, exploratory work by the company and is not intended to infer any expression of intent regarding the future development use of the lands in question,” the spokesperson added.
