The No to Derryadd windfarm group was set up over five years ago when plans were first spoken of in relation to using disused bogland at Lanesboro

The spokesperson for the No to Derryadd Windfarm Group says they're very happy with the victory of their judicial review, but are also ready to repeat the process if necessary.

 

The group has been campaigning for the past five years against plans by Bord Na Mona to erect 24 huge wind turbines on disused bog land outside Lanesboro.

The turbines, if constructed, will be the tallest such structures in the country at 185 metres.

An Bord Pleanala granted permission for the windfarm in June of last year but the group was granted leave to take a judicial review last September.

 

Niall Dennigan says the judgement seems to have been decided on domestic law technicalities and while Bord Na Mona may well easily amend their plans, the group is ready to keep fighting.

The company says it will not be making any further comment at this time.
