"We need to rethink the wind farm idea",  by John Barum.

  This columnist who in the past has (perhaps) seemed to be either in favour, or unsure, about the wind farm, wrote (quote):

"A friend who farms near the Fullabrook complex was reduced to tears when she realised that she will no longer hear the sound of birds, or the murmur of a stream running though their land. Instead all she can hear is the constant whir and swish of the turbines, and when they are a standstill she says there is a permanent electrical hum."

He goes on to quote another example about a family who cannot sleep because of the sound of the turbine motors. He is in favour of the Atlantic Array, and  presumably believes in the effectiveness of wind power, but unlike many of those who support wind power, it is good to see that that he is prepared to listen to those who are suffering from turbine noise with an open mind, and speak up for them in public.

Turbine Delay too much

ESB International  originally said it would cover the access tracks with soil -
now it wants to change this.
 To anyone who has seen these "tracks" this does not come as a surprise.
