An Taisce appeal ‘overplays’ significance of Tinerana House

logo_antaisceAn Taisce has been accused of “scaremongering” in opposing plans for a €100 million tourism development at Tinerana House in east Clare. Earlier this year, Clare County Council gave the go-ahead for the large investment in east Clare. The plan lodged includes the refurbishment of Tinerana House, an 18-hole golf course, a 32-bed hotel, 116 two-bed holiday homes and an equestrian centre. Tinerana Ltd said that the development would generate €13 million a year for the local economy. Former doctor Paschal Carmody and his wife Dr Freida Keane Carmody sold Tinerana House on 270 acres of land on the shores of Lough Derg to Limerick developers Joe Hanrahan and John Shee in 2006. An Taisce has thrown the proposal into doubt by lodging an appeal with An Bord Pleanála.
