Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From the Eirgrid report (PDF)

In Ireland wind generation is expected to meet approximately 37% of the 40% renewable electricity target in 2020. This is the highest wind integration target among European Member States up to 2020 and places Ireland at the forefront of Europe. To connect this amount of wind on the system between now and 2020 requires an effective connection process to be in place. The Gate 3 process involves offers for connection to circa 3,900 MW of wind generation and 1,700 MW of conventional generation and is fundamental to meeting our 40% national renewable energy target

For Comparison, Denmark's target for wind power is 30%, the UK is 20%, Germany's is 19%, and France's 10%.
