The proposed development consists of approximately 20 wind turbines with a typical output of 5-6 megawatts - enough to supply around 85,000 Irish households with renewable electricity every year.

The development will give rise to a range of benefits, including up to 100 construction jobs. It will also create permanent operation and maintenance roles, as well as ancillary functions.

There will be a substantial community benefit fund to help support local community projects and ensure that residents benefit directly from the renewable energy development. The fund will be administered in accordance with Wind Energy Ireland (WEI - formerly IWEA) best practice and grants will be made available after one year of wind farm operation.
