Planning permission refused for solar farm in north Kerry

Planning permission has been refused for a solar farm in north Kerry.

Terra Solar Limited lodged the application with Kerry County Council for ten-year permission for 357,500 square metres of solar panels at Tullamore, Drombeg and Coolkeragh, Listowel.

The proposed solar farm on a 99-hectare site would have a 35-year lifespan.

Terra Solar has been contacted for comment.
