A local wind turbine action group has appealed the go ahead for the construction of 8 new wind turbines in north Leitrim.
Plans lodged by Coillte CGA call for 8 turbines with a maximum overall blade tip height of up to 170 metres in the Dromahair area and surrounds, with two more located across the county boundary in Sligo.
The major project was the subject of close to 100 submissions from locals who were against the development.
These included issues over the environmental impact of the windfarms, noise concerns and worries of flicker from the turbines inside local homes.
Local opposition group Wind Aware Dromahair and Wild Ireland Defence have lodged a planning appeal with An Bord Pleanála.
The Higher planning body is due to make a decision on the project in November.
