A Kinsale based community group says it's committed to it's campaign for the introduction of National Solar Planning Guidelines.
The Jagoes Mills Action Group made the commitment after An Bord Pleanala granted planning permission for a 32 acre Solar Farm in Farrangalway.
The group claim that the Bord's own inspector recommended the refusal of planning for the 5 Mega Watt solar power-generating plant,
