Linsfort Beach is being ruined by oyster farming.
Despite this development being awarded a permit, the local community did not see any notification of planning permission in the local Press nor near the site (as per a house planning application). A lot of us are very upset that a stranger has come into our community and taken over a much loved beach – a local resource for everyone!
Please note that this group is not against entrepreneurship nor oyster farming in general. However, Linsfort Beach is no place for oyster cages and has been turned into an industrial site.
In fact, the licence is for 16 hectares (42 acres), that’s 21 football for 10 years.
We need to act now!

While millions of Euros have been spent on developing and promoting the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, another Government agency has allowed a beautiful stretch of coastline (so dear to many of us) to be ruined by such a development. Please help us to ‘Save Linsfort Beach’ for everyone to enjoy!
