While Innogy Renewables Ireland Ltd intend holding an information evening in Knockanore on this Thursday from 4-9pm, 'to allow local residents to view and comment on plans to potentially develop a windfarm in the Knockanore area', local residents say they have not been given adequate notice of the meeting.
Cathal Hennessy, Managing Director, Innogy Renewables Ireland Ltd, said they are pleased to be able to share with the community the 'initial information' they have about the potential Lyrencarriga onshore wind farm development 'and welcome all interested residents to attend'.
