Galway Wind Park, in Connemara’s Cloosh Valley

Join us for a tour of Galway Wind Way in the Galway Wind Park on Wednesday 10th October.  The 174MW Galway Wind Park, co-developed by SSE and Coillte in Connemara’s Cloosh Valley, is now Ireland’s largest and best performing wind farm, generating more green energy than any other wind generation site on the island.

There will also be a networking lunch on the return journey in Powers Thatched Bar & Restaurant, Oughterard.  There will be a coach pick up at the Galway Bay Hotel at 9.15am and will return to the hotel at approximately 2.00pm.  See below for the full agenda.
