Overview and Timeline

Project Overview

The bogs on which the proposed wind farm will be located, Derryadd, Derryaroge and Lough Bannow bogs, are bounded by the communities of Derraghan, Keenagh, Killashee and Lanesborough.

We are seeking planning permission for a substation at two locations, with only one location to be used if the wind farm is consented planning. It is not determined at this stage where the project will get access to the National Grid, and therefore Bord na Móna has chosen a number of potential location points. The layout of the wind farm will be developed to reflect the new Preferred Draft Approach to Wind Energy Development in Ireland along with the following criteria:

Longford County Development Plan

Proposed turbines will only be sited in areas deemed suitable for wind energy in Longford’s County Development Plan.

Telecommunications Links

A number of licensed links cross the site. None of the proposed turbines will interfere with these links.
