Dunneill Wind Farm is located near Dromorewest, Co. Sligo.

The 11MW wind farm comprises 13 turbines and entered commercial operation in 2010. Dunneill Wind Farm can power almost 7,500 homes and help abate around 9,000 tonnes of harmful carbon dioxide per annum.

Dunneill Wind Farm was granted planning permission in March 2004 to expire in 2024, a period of 20 years. However, the wind farm has only been in commercial operation since 2010, a period of 12 years. SSE Renewables are now seeking to extend the operational life of Dunneill Wind farm by a further 15 years up until 2039 in order to continue the provision of renewable energy and advance its contribution towards Ireland Climate Change commitments.
