The South Westerlies

Orla Brady (Mistresses) leads an ensemble cast in this comedy-drama as an undercover environmental consultant faced with protesters of a wind farm project near their small coastal town.​

Woman of a certain age Kate Ryan hates that descriptor - she’s “only 48 for god’s sake.” Based in Dublin, working as an Environmental Compliance consultant for Norwegian energy giant Noreg Oil, she’s on the verge of a lucrative promotion and transfer to HQ in Oslo. But there’s a caveat; a final assignment for NorskVentus (Noreg Oil’s new wind-power subsidiary).

Despite getting planning permission for their wind farm, offshore from the West Cork town of Carrigeen, ongoing local protests are creating a PR clusterfuck. Kate must go undercover to Carrigeen, quash objections before the six-week appeals deadline and smooth the path for imminent turbine installation, or her promotion is off the table.
