A decision on the construction of seven wind turbines in North Kerry has been deferred.
An Bord Pleanála was expected to make a final decision this week on a proposal to build a windfarm in the Ballingare area located between Lixnaw and Ballyduff.
However, it's now been delayed due to a backlog of cases.
Earlier this year, Kerry County Council refused planning permission for the construction of the North Kerry windfarm.
It was appealed to An Bord Pleanála and a decision is now due by October 7th.
