Judgement due in December in relation to proposed windfarm in Sliabh Luachra

A judgement will be made in December in relation to a proposed windfarm in Sliabh Luachra.

The Sliabh Luachra Wind Awareness group sought a judicial review, due to their opposition of a proposed battery storage facility and 12-turbine windfarm on the Kerry-Cork border.

The review into the windfarm was before the High Court this week.

Permission had previously been granted for both a battery storage facility and a 12-turbine windfarm at Ballynahulla, Ballydesmond.

The Sliabh Luachra Wind Awareness group is opposed to both developments and sought a judicial review in relation to both the windfarm and battery storage facility.

A judicial review is when the High Court supervises lower courts and administrative bodies to ensure decisions are in accordance with the law.

Fred O’Sullivan, who is part of the action group, says it’s been a challenging four days for all involved and the group is very satisfied with the performance of its legal team.

The judicial review into the battery storage facility in the same area is listed in the Four Courts for this coming Tuesday, October 15th.

Final judgement in relation to the windfarm is listed for Friday, December 20th.
