A protest will take place at Glenburnie Beach in Moville this afternoon to highlight the possible implications of the proposed Movile Greencastle Sewerage Scheme for the beach.

The Campaign for a Clean Community says for the past number of days, the beach has been a hive of activity, and it has focussed the minds of local people as to what may happen if an outflow pipe is laid at the proposed treatment plant beside the beach at Carnagarve.

Spokesperson Enda Craig believes that if it is developed, the plant will obscure the natural beauty of the shore as well as compromise the health of countless marine ecosystems.

At present, a complaint from the group is being considered in Europe, but in the meantime, Enda Craig says now is a good time to highlight the beauty of the beach.........
