Ireland South candidate calls for reform of foreshore licensing

An Ireland South election candidate is calling for reform in the area of foreshore licensing.

Senator Grace O’Sullivan was speaking during a visit to Coss Strand, Templenoe.

The Green Party spokesperson on Environmental Protection, Natural Resources, Tourism and the Marine, met with Save Our Beach campaigners concerned about proposals for an oyster farm there.

Senator O’Sullivan says the current foreshore licensing laws date back to 1933 and claimed they are not fit for purpose.
