Stáisiún na Mónadh 29 / Turf Station 29.

Seo stáisiún na mónadh, nó 'an turf-burning' mar a b'fhearr aithne air. Sheas sé ar bhruach Loch Mhín na Cuinge i nGaoth Dobhair. Tógadh idir 1954 agus 1958 é, ceann de cheithre cinn ar chósta thiar na hÉireann sna Caogaidí. Bhí na cinn eile sa Scríb i gCo. na Gaillimhe, Sráid na Cathrach i gCo. An Chláir agus Cathair Saidhbhín i gCo. Chiarraí. Dódh suas le 30,000 tonna mónadh sa bhliain nuair a bhí an stáisiún i mbarr a réime, rud a chuidigh go mór le feirmeoirí an cheantair. Druideadh an stáisiún i 1996 agus leagadh go talamh sa bhliain 2002 é.

This is the Electricity Supply Board peat-powered generating station in Gaoth Dobhair, Co. Donegal, situated on the banks of Loch Mhín na Cuinge. Construction began in 1954 and the station was commissioned in 1958. It was one of four built on the west coast of Ireland in the 1950s. The others were in Scríb, Co. Galway, Miltown Malbay in Co. Clare and Cahersiveen in Co. Kerry. Around 30,000 tons of turf was burned annually when the station was at its peak. This was a much-needed source of additional income for subsistance farmers in the area. The station finally closed in 1996 and was demolished in 2002.
