Ballylongford takes fight to windfarms  

Credit:  The Kerryman | June 17 2017 | www.independent.ie ~~

Ballylongford has joined the fight against the increasing proliferation of wind turbines in North Kerry as the structures come closer and closer to homes in low-lying areas.

Deep fears were voiced at a public meeting in the village last Wednesday as eight more turbines, to soar to 125m, go-up at Tullahinnell on the southern outskirts of Ballylongford.

Two-thirds of the 217 turbines already erected or under construction in Kerry are situated in the northern half of the county.

Public concern is now rounding on a report published by Kerry County Council in 2012 which found most of North Kerry to be of ‘no’ scenic value – even Ballybunion – and therefore open to windfarm development. With Kerry alone already generating 14 per cent of the State’s wind-derived energy, some are saying ‘enough is enough’.

“While it is understandable landowners are tempted.. we, as a community, must be aware of the facts and long-term effects of wind farms,” Tony Dowd of the new group warned.
