The Gweebarra Conservation Group will hold a public meeting in Lettermacaward on Saturday night.
It will take place in St. Bride’s Hall at 8.00pm to discuss the ongoing threat of more industrial wind turbines in the area.
Currently, according to the group, there are four planning applications at various stages before An Bord Pleanála from Graffy, outside Glenties, to Gweebarra, Maas and in the Rosses outside Dungloe.
“These proposals are unsustainable and contrary to the Donegal County Development Plan which acknowledges the importance of Areas of Especially High Scenic Amenity, our Freshwater Pearl Mussel rivers, the Gweebarra River Valley and areas susceptible to landslides,” a spokesperson for the group said.
They add that Minister Ó Brien has rejected Donegal County Council’s decision to omit areas susceptible to landslides as open to industrial wind turbines.
“This is very worrying as we do not want to see another Meenbog disaster which would badly impact on the many sustainable tourism businesses in West Donegal.”
