Croagh Wind Farm
FuturEnergy Ireland is a new joint venture company owned on a 50:50 basis by Coillte and ESB. This collaboration combines the nation’s strongest assets in onshore renewable energy development. The proposed Croagh Wind Farm is now part of the FuturEnergy Ireland portfolio. Please be assured that the project team remains the same, and so does our commitment to the local community.
Subsequent to the request by Leitrim and Sligo County Councils for further information in regard to the planning application for Croagh Wind Farm, Coillte Renewable Energy has now submitted this information to both Councils. As per the requirements of the planning process in relation to this information, notices to inform the public have been placed in two local papers with further site notices established. An opportunity for the public to comment on this further information is now available. All submitted documentation can be found here.
For the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic and varying levels of government restrictions, community engagement practices will be curtailed on all project sites whenever necessary. As we continue our work in accordance with Government guidelines, our commitment to keeping you up-to-date is as important as ever. The project Community Liaison Officer remains your point of contact and we would encourage you to email or call him for any query relating to the project. These details can be found on the ‘Contact’ page.
The area of interest for a potential wind farm development is located on the boundary of Counties Leitrim and Sligo, about 5km west of Drumkeeran and 7km from Dromahair as outlined in the highlighted area displayed.
