Daniel O’Donnell isn’t happy this morning as plans for an oyster farm to be built near his home in Donegal get underway.

The 54-year-old along with hundreds of others are objecting to plans to build an oyster farm in the Donegal Gaeltacht area. The seafood farm is set to cover 12 hectares of beautiful beach land, if it goes ahead.

Speaking to Highland Radio the singer said that he feels an alternative site for the oyster farm would be more appropriate.

“I would appeal for these plans to be moved. I’m hoping that an alternative site or sites can be found because this is not the place for oyster farms, two of the most beautiful strands in the country.

The singer feels a better site could be found.

“I’m all for job creation but this is a tourism amenity and an amenity for the local pony club and local people generally.

“I can’t believe that the people who grant the licenses would come out to where these farms are proposed – I’d be very surprised if they gave it the go ahead.

“I’d never turn my back on job creation; but this would be a terrible eyesore on beautiful white sandy beaches and I would hope somewhere less obtrusive could be found,” he said.

The status of the application is currently unknown. Time will tell.
