High Court Action By Wicklow Wind Farm Deferred To Next Month

Gareth Farrell of East Coast FM News reports a High Court action by a Wicklow Wind farm company, seeking injunctions to stop protesters from interfering with or preventing work to lay cables to connect it’s turbines with the national grid, has been deferred until next month.

Ballycumber Windfarm limited says protesters are placing themselves in danger in trying to block the work on the 22 kilometer route to connect the six turbine windfarm at Ballycumber in Tinahely with an ESB station at Kilmagig.

However according to the Irish Daily Mail, Barrister Oisin Collins who represents a number of landowners in the area, told the court yesterday that the windfarm company wanted to excavate private lands to lay it’s cables, which amounted to trespass. Justice Paul McDermott adjourned the case until early September.
