Save our Dunes campaign

Play

MAIRE O’BRIEN from the Portmarnock Community Association makes an appeal to individuals and sports clubs not to use the dunes for sporting activities, as it is having an adverse effect on the dunes. By running up and down the dunes, people are breaking up the dunes and taking away the grasses.  The sand then blows the sand away and the dunes erode.
