AN TAISCE have submitted a report to Clare County Council outlining their concerns about US President Donald Trump’s plans to construct coastal defences at his resort in Doonbeg.
The environmental charity claims their original concerns have not been addressed in the revised plans.
“It is the considered opinion of An Taisce that the further information submitted for the subject application has failed to address the key ecological and geomorphological concerns expressed about the original application by the Planning Authority (PA) and other third parties,” the report reads.
The report states that sand dune movement is an essential part of the system and should not be confused with erosion.
An Taisce are concerned that building an engineered structure would interfere with the natural processes, which they claim would provide coastal protection.
“Prior to the development of the TIGL Golf Course, the Carrowmore Sand Dunes had been providing a coastal protection service at no cost to the taxpayer for hundreds of years,” the report states.
Speaking on the Ray D’Arcy show recently, his first wife Ivanna Trump said that The Donald “doesn’t give a damn” about Ireland or indeed anywhere but the USA.
