Forgotten Tunnels in Camlough

Forgotten Tunnels in Camlough

The At Slieve Gullion’s Foot facebook page have put together this eye opening collection of photos and press articles around the proposed development of a EBNI hydro-electric pump storage scheme in the area.

The plan involved drawing water from the lake during the night (when the electricity required to power that process was cheaper than during the day) up to a new, man-made reservoir above Ballynaleck/Ballintemple and the next morning, returning it to the lake via a turbine buried at the end of the underground tunnel below the reservoir. This would cater for electricity demand during the day.

This album is for photos of and news items about the abortive EBNI hydro-electric pump storage scheme at Camlough Lake in the late 1960, early 1970s.
