"12.3.2 Operational Phase – Potential for Indirect Impacts The proposed turbines will be visible from the Knockroe passage tomb which is situated on a southfacing slope located approx. 2km to the north. A significant attribute of this Neolithic monument is its alignment with the setting sun on the Winter Solstice and this event has attracted large numbers of attendees in recent years. This astronomical alignment is centred towards the area where the sun sinks below the ridge line in the area of the proposed development site. The visual impact of the presence of turbine structures on or near this astronomical event will create a significant negative
visual impact on the National Monument. The second passage tomb within the study area, located 2km to the west on Baunfree Hill, is not a
National Monument but it is listed in the Record of Monuments and Places. This Neolithic tomb has a recorded alignment towards a cairn monument on top of Slievenamon to the west and this sightline also extends across the proposed development site and the proposed development will also
have a significant negative visual impact on this visual alignment."
