A public meeting is taking place in North Kerry this evening over plans to erect a wind turbine in the area.

Organisers say Kerry County Council has granted planning permission for the turbine at Ahamore Wood, Causeway.

The meeting will be held in Killahan National School, Abbeydorney at 8pm.

Gerard Doyle is with the North Kerry Wind Turbine Awareness Group.

He says people are concerned given that councillors voted last January to prevent new wind projects in the Tralee and Listowel Municipal Districts until 80% of existing plans for wind farms are developed.
