      Bord Gais have got permission to put a wind turbine 400 metres from my home , despite three years of my protesting. I could not get free legal aid to protest in the High Court. I am aged 71. I was told at first that it was illegal for the turbine to be less than 500 metres from my cottage. I was in a group but to no avail. When will people wake up their T D ,s. ?
