Draft Amenity Plan Published - August 2022
The proposed Ballydermot Wind Farm will include the construction of new access roads to install and maintain the wind turbines. The Draft Amenity Plan will seek to utilise these new access roads as a basis for most of the proposed trails for walking, cycling and horse riding. Additional amenity links are also provided to create loops and increase accessibility within the site. Former railway lines, existing roads and machine passes are also proposed to be utilised.
View the Draft Amenity Plan Booklet and the Draft Amenity Plan Map for more detail on the proposed amenity plans for the development.

The purpose of the Ballydermot Wind Farm is to generate renewable electricity for the domestic electricity market in Ireland.
We ensure that local communities in the area benefit from the development of our wind farms by providing various benefits arising from their construction and operation.
We are committed to continuing to keep local residents informed about the proposed wind farm.
Fulfilment of statutory and regulatory obligations is at the forefront of the Ballydermot Wind Farm project.
Wind generated 36% of all electricity in Ireland in 2020, second only to natural gas.
42% of all electricity generated in 2020 came from renewable sources.
Ireland has a national target to move to 80% renewable electricity by 2030.
Ireland had a total installed wind capacity of 4.3 GW at the end of 2020 - an increase of 180 MW on 2019.
