The Wind Farm Community Fund is open for applications until March 16th 2018. This fund supports community and voluntary organisations, for  projects that benefit the wider community near the Wind Farm. Grants given last year ranged from € 1,500 to over €10,000.

  • Black Banks Wind Farm, Co. Leitrim
  • Carrane Hill Wind Farm, Co. Sligo
  • Garvagh Glebe Wind Farm, Co. Leitrim
