Protect Moyle’s Coastal Heritage

30 09 2011

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham is calling on the council to seek advice on how to best protect Moyle’s coastal heritage and to pursue the relevant agencies with responsibility to ensure action is taken.

 He added “The 19th century pier on the walk to Fair Head is fast disappearing and unless action is taken will be irreparably lost to coastal erosion”

 “Moyle’s coast is a rich and diverse historic landscape and includes evidence of past settlements, 19th century industry, old coastal defences, forts and castles, harbours and ports.

 Managing and protecting these Historic resources is becoming an increasing challenge. Much of the resource is fragile and vulnerable – prone to damage from the unpredictable forces of coastal erosion, storms, high tides and the long-term effects of climate change.
