Wind Energy Ireland calls everyone in Tipperary to ‘Get Out In The Wind’ this June

Get out in the wind campaign

Wind Energy Ireland are calling everyone in Tipperary to join their Get Out In The Wind campaign for the month of June. The campaign aims to showcase the country’s wind farms which are free to visit all year round. 

“There are a number of Tipperary based wind farms across the county participating in the month-long campaign – Garracummer Wind Farm and Mienvee Wind Farm, both of which are located on the Tipperary-Cork border.

Each of these wind farms offers visitors a choice of forest trails of varying lengths and difficulties, including part of the Multeen way, which are suitable for walking, hiking, biking or running. The trails offer fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, as visitors weave through some of the country’s most powerful wind turbines which, every day, are helping to lead the way to a brighter Irish energy future. 

It’s the perfect location for families to #GetOutInTheWind this June and will help people understand how Garracummer and Mienvee operate by enabling visitors to get up close to the source of more than a third of the country’s annual electricity supply.”

Speaking about windfarms CEO of Wind Energy Ireland said:

“Irish people want the affordable energy that wind energy gives us. They also want the energy security and the local jobs that Irish wind farms provide.  And now, they can see all of these benefits up close as part of a free family-friendly activity all around the country. 

“We’re proud to be leading Ireland’s clean energy revolution so we are dedicating the full month of June to celebrating our wind farms with our Get Out in the Wind Campaign.

“Wind energy is an Irish success story that benefits communities all across Ireland, supporting jobs, and cutting our carbon emissions and your bills. 

“But wind farms can also be a haven for wildlife and offer wonderful family days out with a variety of walking, biking, horse-riding and hiking trails on offer, many of them open to the public every day.”

“Our members are committed to ensuring that not only do they provide clean energy, but they also give back to their local communities, whether that’s through funding local initiatives or providing amenities that allow families to get out and enjoy nature.

“We would encourage everyone to get out in the fresh air this June and see Ireland’s leading natural resource in action.”
