Stormont Environment Minister considering Carrickduff windfarm intervention

The Environment Minister in the North is to take immediate action in relation to the proposed Carrickduff Wind Farm following an issue raised with him by a Donegal County Councilor.

The wind farm would be situated on the border between Co. Donegal and Co. Tyrone.
