More Irish Family Wind Farm Casualties

ROSCOMMON: Dorothy & Michael Keane - “Our doctor put us on sleeping tablets but told us to get out of the house,” she said. “Going into our bedroom is like going into a torture chamber. That relentless pitch drives you insane.
Co. CORK: seven households have taken the unique step of suing local developer Enercon Services for driving them out of their homes. Life became so tough for the Banteer residents that they quit their properties 18 months ago and never went back.
In Kilrush, Co. CLARE: Astrid Adler said her health had suffered from the Monmore Windfarm 750m away and she now regularly hyperventilates.
“There are seven turbines, but they want to build 45 more.We would leave, but nobody would buy our house,” she said.
“We have tried to track down the mysterious German owners but if you want to complain there is nowhere to go. The original planners sold it on immediately and nobody takes responsibility.”
Philip Hickey (51), lives just 370m from one of six turbines erected in Ballylusk, Co.WEXFORD: in breach of planning rules which stipulate they should be a minimum of 500m from homes.
“We have to listen to it all day. This was our dream home but they have ruined it,” said Philip.
“If we could move we would, but nobody would buy our house now. It was once worth €300,000, but now it’s worth zero.”
