Causeway Coast & Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane has described the National Trust as a liability to the Tourism trade going forward. The Councillor hit out at what he described as the, ‘greedy all consuming economic monolith’ who closed the public toilets for numerous visitors to the Giant’s Causeway.

The Councillor said,

“I had the good fortune to get out to the Causeway for a walk today (Saint Stephen’s day). But I simply could not believe the National Trust was so petty as to close the public toilets at the North’s number one tourist attraction.

“A large number of tourists were present with no visitors centre to avail of. The closing of the public conveniences was reprehensible. The organisation continues to prove itself unfit for the challenges ahead.

“The increase in visitor numbers is due not to the National Trust but massive public funding projects like the visitors centre and strategic marketing by Tourism Ireland and Tourism NI.

“The Causeway Coast and Glens Council must now revisit previous agreements with the Trust to ascertain if they are in breech of their responsibilities. The Trust must not be allowed to behave in a manner that puts our tourism product in jeopardy “.
