West Offaly Power Station in Shannonbridge. June decision date for station demolition planThe ESB has formally lodged a planning application to demolish the West Offaly Power Station in Shannonbridge. The project would be carried out in two phases, according to the newly-submitted plans, the first being the demolition of the former power station and all existing structures on the 35-hectare site to ground level after power generation ceased there in 2020. Building began on a new €240m West Offaly Power plant beside that facility in December 2002 and it was officially opened in 2005. Offaly County Council is expected to announce a decision on the Shannonbridge project by June 29 next.
