The application is for a 656 acre site.

A planning application has been lodged for a Solar Energy Farm 200 times the size of Croke Park's pitch in County Meath.

The 656 acre site, in the East of the county, is larger than the entire Stradbally Estate where Electric Picnic is normally held, according to the Independent.

It's to be set up in 3,990 rows, with a total of almost 411,000 panels.
