Save our Hills members hoping to prevent wind farm in upland Kilkenny say they’ll take their fight to the highest courts if necessary

It's in light of a project that's being planned for the Castlewarren, Johnswell, Clara and surrounding areas

The Save our Hills protestors say they will go to court to stop a wind farm being developed in their area.

EDF Energy has confirmed they want to go ahead with a project in the Castlewarren, Johnswell, Clara and surrounding areas of County Kilkenny.

And he’s been telling our Sue Nunn that they’ll take that fight all the way to the Supreme Court and beyond.
