Golf Course To Be Built Next To Unesco World Heritage Site In Northern Ireland
Published March 1, 2013
IN FOR THE LONG HAUL: The London TELEGRAPH reported that the ruling "was a personal triumph" for the US-based Northern Ireland businessman Dr. Alistair Hanna who is heading up the investment and advisory group involved in the Bushmills Dunes golf resort and spa scheme, and which he claims "could create up to 360 direct jobs and an estimated 300 more through suppliers and construction." Hanna was not in court for Wednesday's judgment, but afterwards "declared work would begin as soon as possible." It is "likely to begin towards the end of the summer and take at least two years, maybe three, to complete" (TELEGRAPH, 2/27). The BBC reported Hanna said it will be one of the "most spectacular golf developments ever seen in Ireland." Hanna: "Not only will the resort provide a world-class golf links course and facilities attracting thousands of visitors each year, it will also protect the vulnerable topography of the coastal area which has been left vulnerable following decades of neglect." The resort "is to be known as Bushmills Dunes Golf Resort and Spa" (BBC, 2/28).
