As you may know, one of my sons is a surfer dude. He is currently in the West Coast of the USA. I am in the midst (actually at the end of painting his room). I painted the crippled son’s room too. I went with an all white theme. That way you don’t don’t notice the splotches. Crippled son has already made black marks on the white wall. I don’t know why I bother.
Anyway, talking to surfer dude tonight, and we had such a laugh.
USA’s presidential candidate Donald Trump wants to build a 200,000 tonne rock wall that would ‘destroy’ a picturesque beach and surf spot in Ireland in order to save his multi-million pound golf resort.
On the other-side of the world from Trump’s proposed wall between the USA and Mexico (yeah, that’s a real thing) his Ireland-based firm that runs beach-side Doonbeg Golf Resort in County Clare, is seeking planning permission to dump large boulders on Doughmore beach, creating a wall they hope will prevent erosion of the golf course there. The reverb from that sea wall could end up spoiling one of the best beach breaks in County Clare.
Ain’t gonna happen Donald, Ireland has more to do with its money than build a wall around your golf resort. The surfers will not allow it either!
