Lyrenacarriga Wind Farm Update: Jan 8, 2021

RWE (formerly Innogy) - under the name Curns Energy Ltd - has now lodged their planning application for the construction of 17 x 150 metre high industrial wind turbines across West Waterford and East Cork. Included in the application is a large substation and battery storage facility, both of which would be located on the water supply for Youghal. Over the coming weeks, Blackwater Wind Aware community group - comprised of local residents, landowners and business owners - will be online to advise and help with your planning objection. The closing date for objections to An Bord Pleanala is March 5, 2021.  We would encourage you all to scrutinise the planning application and associated documents at  as it now highlights the many homes and families who will have their lives adversely affected and some would say ruined, if this giant wind farm is built.
Once there is a planning application number available from ABP this month, then our local community will be able to make submissions. Please email with any questions or concerns. Thank you.


The INNOGY windfarm proposal was deemed a 'S.I.D.' by An Bord Pleanala (Strategic Infrastructure Development) in 2020. Send us your email address to receive the latest news to your inbox -
