Carrigart beach picSinn Fein says Donegal County Council must reinstate public access to Carrigart beach.
A disputed right of way to the beach has been blocked off by a contractor developing in the area.
Sinn Fein Councillor Mick Quinn and Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn have now visited the site and met with locals – they are  calling on the council to not wipe their hands of the situation and ensure the right of way is reinstated.
Cllr Quinn said:
“Having visited the site and seen for ourselves the situation, we are firmly of the view that a right of way has been in place and needs to be reinstated.
Our beaches are not private property. They are precious amenities that belong to all of our people. We are particularly concerned at reports that the developers have asked local people to leave the beach and have been allowed to carry out such substantial building works right on the beach front”.
“Donegal County Council needs to step in and sort this out. It is not good enough for them to wipe their hands of any responsibility for this debacle.
The developers themselves also need to clarify that they will reinstate the public access to Aughadahor beach and not seek to claim this public beach for their private financial gain. We will be seeking that clarification in representations to them this week”.
