Controversial development could dent business confidence in Ballybunion

The Chairman of the preservation group in Ballybunion says business confidence in the town will be seriously dented if the controversial development on the grounds of the former castle hotel doesn`t go ahead. J Galvin says people in Ballybunion are becoming disillusioned with the delays to the development of the proposed 107 bedroom hotel.This project has been in the pipeline for four years and has been delayed again today. He believes developer Tom McEnery may not reapply should this latest application to An Board Pleanala be turned down.
