Visitors plus residents of Moville and Greencastle came together on Glenburnie beach at Carnagarve to protest against a proposed sewage discharge pipe into Lough Foyle.
A spokesperson for the Campaign for a Clean Estuary (CFCE) stated: “Visitors and locals alike are dumbfounded at the lack of reasoning, logic and plain common sense regarding this proposal.
“It is now high time that all local residents lobbied their political representatives and insisted this amazing series of golden pocket beaches are formally designated by Donegal County Council to enable them to be safeguarded for all times.
“These beaches, bathing waters and shore walk are this community’s most important local assets both economically and spiritually and must be guarded and protected at all costs from ill informed and ill advised bureaucratic decisions.”
The CFCE thanked Padraig McLaughlin T.D., and Councillors Jack Murray and Albert Doherty for attending the gathering.
Local Councillor Martin Farren was unable to attend and sent his apologies.
