Knocknafallia was the site for a proposed wind farm subject to considerable controversy and ultimate rejection in 1999. The view shows Crohan West (left of picture) and the ridge from it extending to Knockmeal (560m) to the right. Between Knocknafallia and Knockmeal you can see some fairly obtrusive roads associated with the forestry to the right, marked as Meoul on the map.
