Clare County Council: No Representation By Varadkar On Wind Farm Planning File
Clare County Council says it has no record of receiving any call from Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in relation to a planning application for a West Clare wind farm that had been opposed by President Donald Trump.At an event in Washington D.C. today, after the pair had met in the White House, the Taoiseach recounted how he had received a call from Mr. Trump in relation to an application for nine wind turbines to be built close to the Trump family’s Doonbeg golf resort. The Taoiseach, then Minister for Tourism, said he “rang the County Council and inquired about the planning permission and subsequently the planning permission was declined.”
