Opposition grows to Ballyness Oyster Farm Licence applications

Over 700 people attended a meeting in Falcarragh last night to voice opposition to applications for Oyster Farming licences on Ballyness Bay in Cloughaneely.

The 'Save Ballyness Bay' committee says the turnout is indicative of the opposition in the area to the proposals.

Committee Spokesperson John Conaghan says the people are resolute in their opposition..........
