THE CONSTRUCTION OF a cooperative wind farm project in Co Clare will create up to 300 jobs in the region.

West Clare Renewable Energy (WCRE) plans to build the largest community-owned wind farm in Ireland, with 28 turbines.

WCRE says the project will be able to produce enough electricity for every business and home in Co Clare.

Planning permission has been granted for the project, based between Ennis and Miltown Malbay.

It involves an investment of €200m and will be collectively run by 30 farming families.

The wind farm will take up to two-and-a-half years to construct.
