The Project

The proposed Sheskin South Wind-Farm development site is located approximately 6.7 km northeast of Bangor Erris and 11km south of the Atlantic Coastline and falls entirely within the townland of Sheskin, Co. Mayo. The study area comprises lands predominantly under commercial forestry within Sheskin townland and measures approximately 1,013 hectares. The site is accessible from the south via the N59 and travelling northwards on the L52926 local road and then via a forestry gravel road. The L52926 and forestry road forms part of the Western Way walking trail. The waymarked route of this walking trail follows the eastern boundary of Sheskin South project site, before continuing northeast towards Ballycastle.
