These protesters are calling for an end to 'pylon and wind farm lunacy'

More than 3,000 are attending a demonstration organised by Wind Aware Ireland.

MORE THAN 3,000 protesters have flocked to Dublin, calling on the government to revisit plans to build wind turbines and pylons across the county.

Their fears range from how it will affect our health and water supply, to the impact the plans could have on tourism.

Many are calling increased use of other forms of renewable energy such as biomass.

The protest was organised by Wind Aware, an umbrella organisation representing groups opposed to pylons, high-power cables and large-scale wind farms.

We spoke to some of those protesting outside Leinster House today:
