"While Kerry only accounts for three per cent of the country’s population it currently produces 18 per cent of Ireland’s total wind energy, Mr Ginty told Councillors.
Cllr Aoife Thornton (FG) welcomed the news and said she would like to see an even bigger reduction, than the proposed 90 per cent cut in lands available for turbines.
“The [wind power output] figures for Kerry speak for themselves. We’re giving enough,” she said.
Her sentiments were echoed by Cllr Michael Foley (FG) who said north Kerry has been “saturated” with turbines and that 'enough is enough'."
Bob would disagree with Cllr Michael Foley: with wind farms, enough is too much.
