While on a flight near Keeper Hill, a mountain in the Slieve Felim range,
North Tipperary (15 August 2014 ) I noticed what appears to be a series of landslides on the north face, just below the RTE masts.
This aerial photo shows that the most obvious damage is to a forestry
plantation affected by two slip paths and as the fallen trees are still green, this must be a relatively recent event.
From what I have since seen online, it appears that planning has been
granted for the development of 16 wind turbines on Keeper.
I'm no engineer but common sense I would have thought indicates that
the ground is unstable although according to the Irish Times ( 2 Aug 2014 ) they reported that one of the reasons planning was approved was that the risk of peat slippage was low... maybe An Bord Pleanála should now review their evidence for this?
