A few weeks ago we asked you to Help Stop Donald Trump From Destroying This County Clare Beach

Trump and his golf resort are seeking permission to build a 2.8km, 15ft seawall at Doughmore Beach, Co. Clare – closing off the area of the beach by his golf resort.

Building the wall will involve dumping 200,000 tonnes of rock onto the coastal Carrowmore sand dunes – which will not only damage them, but will also hugely affect the dune habitats, restrict public access to the beach and negatively impact the quality of waves for surfers.  

And waves are exactly what beautiful Doughmore Beach is famous for. 

The petition now has over 50,000 signatures, but it still needs another 100,000. So they've made this video to raise awareness. 

Sign the petition here.
