The proposed development at Meentycat will involve the construction of fifteen wind turbines, a substation and an extensive network of roads. The site is located atop a blanket-bog-covered hill north of Ballybofey. There are no known monuments within 1km of the proposed wind farm. The site was extensively tested through the excavation of sixteen 100m-long trenches. No evidence of archaeological activity was revealed in any of the trenches.
