Infrasound

What gives ESB, the RIGHT to allow unwanted sound (INFRASOUND) on our property and in our home when we DO NOT want it? When you have a sound like INFRASOUND invading your home taking away the right to sleep and the right to live in a healthy environment, we SHOULD HAVE the right to keep it out. This is criminal to force something on someone who does not want it.

A Wind Farm Lament

JOHNSTOWN WIND ACTION GROUP·THURSDAY, 18 MAY 2017



I know you’re fighting wind turbines and I thought I’d tell you about 'mine' which have unfortunately gone up and are now switched on! I had enough money when my dad died to buy my little house in Drinagh which I still love despite living in the middle of a wind farm -they are the wind turbines just gone up which you can see on Bantry road just before Drimoleague (heading from Dunmanway to Bantry) I never thought there was any risk of wind turbines when I bought my house as there didn’t seem anywhere high enough around but, over the last year, 10 turbines 125 metres high appeared to the back of my house and along the lane where I used to enjoy walking my dogs. They are nearer than the 500 metres (the recommended setback distance) to houses along the lane, although the farmer has 3 on his land and is probably being paid thousands to have them there. I think landowners were attracted by easy money with absolutely no idea of the impact the wind farm would have on peoples lives.

NOISE: A Startling Case Of Two Schools In Proximity To Wind Turbines



In an effort to assist a society in danger, I feel obligated to make this case public. I am employed in schools within a rural area. The projects I am involved in run throughout the school year. I hope it will be understood why I cannot reveal names and locations. Sadly, I must protect myself against the professional consequences which could result from a fully detailed testimony.

During the past two years, I have worked in a school located 5 km to the east of a small wind farm, whose elevation is about 300 feet above that of the establishment. Most of the time, the school is downwind from the 2 MW wind turbines. In 2014/2015, I worked with the kindergarten consisting of 20 children aged 2.5 to 5 years of age. I’ve been engaged in this work for a long time, and I know the region and its people very well.
