Residents and environmentalists were angry after their letters of objection were ruled inadmissible by county council planners.
The group will meet at the Highlands Hotel.
The proposal to construct a 25-turbine wind farm just 1.5km outside the vibrant tourist town has angered many and led to a large number of objections from concerned local residents.
A spokesman for the group told donegaldaily.com that Donegal County Council had last week begun the process of returning objections made by local residents, conservation groups and local tourist businesses to the windfarm.
It appears there is a row over how the objections were made.
Most of the objections complained that the 325-ft structures would destroy the natural beauty and amenity of the area and negatively impact on Glenties’ tourist potential.
A large number complained of the impact that the proposal would have on the red grouse and Golden Eagles that frequent the area and on a nearby Special Area of Conservation home to the protected Freshwater Pearl Mussel.
Donegal County Council had requested further information from Straboy Wind Energy Limited regarding the ecological impacts of the project.
Residents are now consulting lawyers on how to prevent the project going ahead.
It would take the number of turbines in the Glenties area to more than 100.
However the projects do have their supporters, with some people saying they have no objection to them at all.
