Con, Sarah & Niamh's Parachute Jump

Con Lehane, Sarah Hodkinson and Niamh Falvey will each be undertaking a sponsored tandem sky dive from 10,000 feet with the Irish Parachute Club in support of the Shehy Wind Action Group, who are opposing the development of a large scale industrial wind farm around the iconic Shehy Mountain. Funds raised will go towards our High Court Action. Please support us and help save Shehy for future generations. Our jumps on the 10th September  were postponed due to bad weather. Still time to donate!

OUR BEAUTIFUL SHEHY

Shehy mountain in West Cork is an iconic landmark; together with the surrounding moorland, forest and small community farms it forms an enviromentally rich and diverse refuge for protected species such as the freshwater pearl mussel, arctic char, white tailed sea eaglels, hen harriers, choughs, deer, otters and many other species.
THIS ENVIROMENT IS ABOUT TO BE IRREPARABLY DESTROYED.
An 11 turbine industrial wind farm has been given permission by An Bord Pleanala. The turbines will be 131meters high, with massive concrete bases poured into the moorland.
On the 20th of February 2017 in the High Court, we were granted leave for a Judicial Review of An Bord Pleanala's decisions to give planning permission for the wind farm and the connection route.
The High Court only grants such leave where it considers that there exist substantial legal grounds to justify it; clearly Shehy More fulfills that criteria. The legal challenge is now on and we will be attending court on the 7th of November, where our counsel will present our case.
This action is very expensive and places a great financial burden on the local community who are working to preseve this beautiful area. If you can make any donation, no matter how big or small, through our GoFundMe page or to Sarah, Con and Niahms parachute jump page(posted above), please know that it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
