Bushmill Dunes Going Forward After Legal Challenge Dismissal

Telegraph Reporters reports on the controversial development overlooking Giant's Causeway getting the green light after a National Trust legal challenge was dismissed.

The 18-hole David McLay Kidd design was not as much the issue as was the high end hotel overlooking one of the world's wonders.

The Trust launched a fierce campaign of resistance because of the close proximity of the proposed 18-hole championship course, luxury hotel and holiday accommodation to the Causeway and sought a judicial review of the minister's decision to approve the application – one of the most significant since the power-sharing executive was established in Belfast.

Dr Hanna was not in court for today'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.

Plus the R&A will have a posh place to stay when they finally take the Open Championship back to Royal Portrush!

Hey, I'm dreamer.
