No to Derryadd Wind Farm

This is a petition to stop the proposed Bord na Mona Wind Farm from going ahead.

Such a development is going to have an enormous negative impact on us all, in terms of our Families health, property prices, land prices, animal welfare, history, historical amenity, Tourism, jobs, attractions, along with being visually intrusive on our area.

Lanesboro and it's surrounding areas have worked tirelessly over the years to make it what it is today in terms of Tourism, jobs, economic growth and a cherished place to hold countless festivals and events. This proposed development will wipe that all out if it goes ahead.

We have tried talking with BnM and explaining our concerns, but they refuse to acknowledge such and are moving forward.

Thankfully Longford County Council fully recognises our concerns and the damage such a development would do to the County.

There are alternatives to this proposed development. That being the Mid Shannon Wilderness Park. Designed to protect and enhance wildlife in the area.

If BnM are truly in favour of green energy, then Solar can work alongside the proposed Wilderness Park and contribute to a cleaner environmental project in the area, while sustaining BnM jobs, compared to the proposed Wind Farm.
