RTE 2 FEB 2018 16:49:50 US President Donald Trump has declared a major waterway in the North West of Ireland to be a “rogue” waterway.
It is now being treated as a marine reserve, which will allow the construction of golf courses and golf course hotels.
The decision to designate the waters north of Cork as a protected marine area comes as a result of a consultation process.
The US President said it was a “good thing”.
He said it showed that it was the right thing to do.
“The North West is a very important area.
“And we’re very proud of the fact that we got the first round of this project off the ground. “
He added: “This is a great day for North and South Kerry, for the people of the North.””
And we’re very proud of the fact that we got the first round of this project off the ground.
He added: “This is a great day for North and South Kerry, for the people of the North.”
The decision has sparked anger on social media with some saying it is “completely unjustified”.
The announcement comes as tensions are running high between the two nations following the recent Brexit vote.
The Irish government has said it is prepared to take legal action if Trump wants to re-open the river.
The move comes after Trump announced plans to construct a golf course at the golf course on his Irish estate.
Trump’s golf course was built in 1983, but was mothballed after the Brexit vote, and is currently being managed by the US firm Trump International Golf Links.
The project has been the subject of a public consultation process and a formal proposal to reopen the river has been submitted to the US Government.
The golf course is one of the world’s most expensive properties.
Trump International Golf has paid nearly £4m for land in the area.
