Bord na Móna is an Irish, semi-state climate solutions company helping lead Ireland towards a climate neutral future. It was founded in 1934 as The Turf Development Board to enhance national energy security through peat harvesting and became Bord na Móna in 1946. Today, we have radically changed our approach to face an even greater challenge: climate change. We have ended peat harvesting and now focus on developing climate solutions in renewable energy, sustainable waste management, carbon storage, and biodiversity conservation. We have been constructing and maintaining large-scale infrastructure for decades. Today, we are using that experience to build renewable energy developments across the country.
In line with this strategy, Bord na Móna is proposing to develop a wind farm on Garryhinch Bog located in Counties Laois and Offaly. Garryhinch Bog is adjacent to the communities of Clonygowan and Mountmellick.
The proposed development will be known as Garryhinch Wind Farm.
We intend to develop the proposed wind farm on the Garryhinch Bog in Counties Laois and Offaly.
Bord na Móna has developed a draft wind turbine layout for the proposed Garryhinch Wind Farm
We are committed to keeping the local community informed about the project with regular updates, information about public events and newsletters.
