A Donegal Cllr has claimed that UK windfarm developers targeting the county are laughing all the way to the bank.

Planree Ltd have applied to An Board Pleanala to develop Irelands biggest onshore windfarm at Carrickduff Hill and Lismullyduff.

The proposed windfarm could see up to 49 wind turbines built over 20 townlands from Barnesmore Gap right up to the Castlefin area.

The Council is due to consider its proposed submission to An Bord Pleanala on the planned wind farm at its meeting on Monday, while submissions or objections from the public must be submitted today.

Cllr Dessie Shiels says some local authority’s charge 25,000 per turbine, where as in Co Donegal developers are charged nothing.
