Published on behalf of The Delvin Raharney Ballivor (DRB) Wind Action Group
The Delvin Raharney Ballivor (DRB) Wind Action Group will host a Community Meeting on the 23rd of October at 3pm at ST PATRICK’S HALL (NEW VENUE).
The meeting will discuss the recently submitted planning application to An Bord Pleanala by Bracklyn Windfarm Limited for the construction of a 9 Turbine Wind Farm, associated roads, cabling, and local landscape changes in and around the Townlands of Ballagh, Billistown, Ballinacor, Bracklyn, Co Westmeath and Coolronan and Ballivor Co Meath.
Weather dependent, a blimp will be flown on the day at the proposed turbine height of 185 metres.
We would encourage the community to attend this important meeting so we can share information, opinions, and next steps regarding the proposed development.
The DRB Wind Action Group is strongly of the opinion that the national renewable energy strategy is seriously flawed, there is already enough wind energy developed in Ireland, and the Delvin-Raharney-Ballivor -Coolronan region is certainly not an appropriate landscape for industrialisation with enormous wind turbines.

“Due to inclement weather conditions forecast for tomorrow 23rd of October, the Delvin Raharney Ballivor (DRB) Wind Action Groups Community meeting to discuss the recently submitted planning application to an Bord Pleanala by Bracklyn Windfarm for 9 Turbines will now take place indoors at 3.00 pm in St Patricks Hall, Main Street Delvin. Unfortunately, we will be unable to launch our blimp, as it needs calm weather conditions, but we hope to float the Blimp in the coming weeks and will communicate out a few days ahead. Hope that you can all make this important meeting at 3 pm tomorrow.”
