Important Note[edit]

The overall tone of this article is incorrect and misleading and requires rework. The name Turlough Hill refers to the Hydro Scheme only. It is important to note that it does not refer to the mountain on which the higher, artificial, lake is situated. ESB would neither have had the authority nor the inclination to either name or rename the mountain nor the natural lake that form the Turlough Hill Hydro Scheme. Price wrote in 1945 <<Is cosúil gurb e Toomenan seanainm na háite>> which shows that perhaps he wasn't sure, while Anthony Hanrahan wrote on the same note in 1970 that a local he spoke with referred to the mountain as Burryglass or Burrygloss. It is more likely that Tomaneena refers to a location beside the original shore of Lough Nahanagan, perhaps where the Administration building or Electrical compound is now. Given it's proximity to the Wicklow Gap and it's location to St. Kevin's road it may have been a suitable spot for a summer fair? ESBPGEN (talk) 12:13, 15 January 2016 (UTC)


The article says "...environmental feat in Ireland." This needs to be clarified. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 22:28, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Tag says the article is "unclear". What is unclear? Sarah777 (talk) 01:13, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Capacity and Efficiency[edit]

Is the any information available on Turlough Hill's capacity and efficiency? -- Damobbb (talk) 14:33, 7 May 2009 (UTC)


Just a note regarding the coordinates in the two infoboxes, which are different. The mountain infobox uses the location of the summit to the south-west of the upper reservoir. The power station infobox uses the location of the upper reservoir. This reflects the fact the the summit and the power station are not in the exact same location - Joe King (talk) 18:31, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
