The ABO Wind Ireland Limited planning application for 11 wind turbines in Rednagh Kiladuff, Ballymanus, Preban, Ballinglen, and Asknaskeagh has been refused by Wicklow County Council.

Councillor Pat Kennedy said “This comes after fierce opposition from local residents and is the second time that it has been refused. Let’s hope that the developers respect the wishes of the communities affected and the decision of Wicklow County Council and leave this landscape to the people who have looked after it for generations.”

“I was proud to have been able to stand with the communities on both occasions and I will do so again if needs be. Hopefully it will not come to that again. Well done to all who stood up for their community.”
