Kerry County Council will object, in the strongest terms, to plans for a massive new wind farm close to Ballylongford.

In early January Shronowen Wind Farm Limited - a subsidiary of Dublin-based EMP energy - bypassed Kerry County Council and applied directly to An Bord Pleanála for permission to build a 12-turbine windfarm on Shronowen bog just south of the north Kerry village. Following a thorough examination of the site and the proposals, Kerry County Council strongly opposes the plan and, on Monday, management brought the detailed submission they intend to make to An Bord Pleanála before councillors for their approval.
