The Doolin Point: Irish pearl, do not touch

The Doolin wave peak, in Ireland, is threatened by the construction of a €6 million pier planned by the Clare County Council.

The Irish surfers may have reasons for concern as the best wave spots of the country might disappear - Doolin Point and Crab Island.

The West Coast Surf Club and Irish Surfing Association are launching a petition for everyone to sign their protest. Surf tourism is a very relevant activity in the area of west Clare and this pier will certainly change many lives.

Surfers suggest moving the planned pier back towards the existing one by 50 metres could resolve the problem. This landmark of Irish surfing will have a final solution by August 5. 

The Doolin Point is one of Europe's surfing pearls. Do not let the ’ride of a lifetime’ for 90% of Irish surfers go away.
