Anti-wind-turbine protestors stage demonstration outside An Bord Pleanála offices

Anti-wind-turbine protestors said today that the Government’s energy policy is flawed, and are calling for a re-think.

Around 100 protestors from rural communities in Meath, the Midlands and Wexford gathered in Dublin earlier to highlight their opposition to Wind farms.

They say these 180-foot turbines will destroy the countryside, and question their ability to reduce carbon emissions in any meaningful way.

Wind Aware Ireland organised the protest outside the offices of An Bord Pleanála, as they feel locals’ concerns are not being heard.

A number of cases are currently before the courts, and communities are calling on the Government to halt their renewable energy strategy.

Chairperson of Wind Aware Ireland Henry Fingleton says wind turbines should concern every taxpayer.

Fianna Fáil Senator Thomas Byrne, who was supporting the protestors, said the Government’s energy strategy must be revisited.
