Lyrenacarriga Wind Farm

The project

Curns Energy Limited, a collaborative endeavour between RWE Renewables Ireland Ltd and Highfield Energy Ltd, is spearheading the development of the Lyrenacarriga (Lyre) Wind Farm.

Situated roughly 5 kilometres southeast of Tallow, in Co. Waterford, and about 9 kilometres northwest of Youghal, in Co. Cork, the wind farm covers an expansive area of approximately 733 hectares. Predominantly, the site is used for commercial forestry, alongside portions dedicated to agricultural use.

The planned project includes the installation of 17 wind turbines, each reaching a maximum height of 150 metres to the blade's tip. These turbines, designed to produce up to 5 megawatts (MW) each, are strategically positioned to ensure a minimum distance of 700 metres from residential properties.
