Anti-wind turbine protesters gathered at the gates of The Heritage Hotel Killenard last Monday afternoon, where Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Fine Gael party were holding their annual meeting.

The protesters say they were refused access to the hotel grounds, and their request to meet the party to present a letter was also turned down.

“They are here to discuss what’s going to be said in the Dáil, and we are here to say that our issue should be highlighted. These turbines are being imposed on communities with outdated guidelines,” said protester Charlie Gorman from the Slieve Bloom Wind Turbine Awareness group.
