Clare man wins legal fight for right-of-way at Donald Trump golf course

Fair dues to James McNulty. I heard him interviewed on RTE radio earlier. He's not in great health now but has been fighting a battle for many years it seems against Clare County Council who sought to extinguish a public right of way to Doonbeg Beach in order to facilitate a golf course. Thanks James for taking a stand for the common man against both big business and our frequently cowed public representatives.

Thankfully, there are many James McNulty's living in Ireland. Honest,principled and determined to see fair play win out.

There's also been some interesting recent discussion on the health of golf as a sport in modern Ireland. Apparently the Pro game is doing well but the amateur membership and participation is shrinking.

New ways of doing business, courses too hard, too long, cultural changes where Daddy is now expected to be hands on at weekends instead of watering the 19th hole after a few hours on the fairways.

Time to get rid of a few of these courses hopefully that are often built in scenic areas at the expense of local access.

This is rubbish.

The county council have now been landed with the legal costs of an action that had it proceeded would have been lost since the golf course was going to provide an alternative means of access anyway.

I do not know what the OP is crowing about and the Trump organization could not have cared less about this right of way.

The only person now out of pocket is the Irish taxpayer and all for nothing.

Better to tell Trump to ************************ off. Plenty of jobs in London for Doonbeg people

Is this true?

What is it with Irish County Councils spending lots of lolly on rights of way legal issues?

Sadly rather than worrying about Trump or rights of way, most Doonbeg people are worried about Traveller gangs from Ennis & Kilrush that have West Clare robbed blind over the past few years...without anyone been caught...

Freewillie from the article.

Mr Justice Clarke said it appeared “Trump has no interest in extinguishing the right of way”.

Trump is popular in Doonbeg as an employer

It would not surprise me if Enda Kenny's slitheries were to have been behind
Clare County Council's position ...as the slitheries...are the type of people who hedge bets...and heck ...it would not surprise me if some of the slitheries were on Team Trump

But not enough either.. It's sad that Clare county council were fighting on behalf of DT, rather than the local and common good..
But 99% of them will get reelected next time regardless, so they don't give a shiite....

Yep get a few minimum wage people (eg polish) people employed by Trump, but destroy yet another bit of the character of Ireland, the coast lines thousands of people come to see and experience.

How many people from Doonbeg has Trump employed so far?

Because like the disgraceful spectacle in Sligo over Lissadell many Irish county councillors do not care about how council money is spent once they get on a bandwagon of attacking anybody they see as well off.

Plenty. But the well off NIMBYs invariably from outside West Clare prefer to have the young people emigrate so that they can enjoy the scenery uninterupted on their annual visit
