To many they have become the scourge of 21st Century Ireland.
Families around the country are being driven from their homes by the noise and disruption of windfarms.
Those living close to the turbines claim their lives have been ruined by the noise, vibrations and light flicker from the giant machines.
Protesters claim windfarms were built without local consultation and without any debate into long-term health effects.
And yet there are plans to bring thousands more of the towers to every corner of Ireland.
