Loughs Agency

On Fri afternoon last, members of the CFCE, accompanied by local Sinn Fein Clr. Jack Murray, met with the Loughs Agency’s Director of Conservation and Protection Mr John mc Cartney and board member Mr Laurence Arbuuckle to discuss the fears and concerns of the local community of Moville and Greencastle in relation to the proposed sewage discharge by Donegal Co Council into the waters of the Foyle estuary at Carnagarve.

The CFCE members gave a detailed history of the campaign to date and impressed upon the director and board member the importance of moving the discharge north of Greencastle in line with the ‘ precautionary principle’ which was the basis of the unanimous decision of the elected members of Donegal Co Cl. taken all those years ago in 1990.


The still unexplained decision by the Council executive to abandon this democratic decision has been the main overriding factor for the delay in delivering this overdue and badly needed Waste Water Treatment Plant for the Moville and Greencastle communities.

Clr Murray pointed to the fact that all political parties in the Inishowen Peninsula are once again in total agreement with the 1990 decision in relation to the location outside the estuary, thus protecting the highly regarded bathing waters, pocket beaches and shore walk between Moville and Greencastle.
