I regularly visit the coastline of north Antrim and this year was no exception, being in the company of a dozen visually impaired persons from Cardiff.

But I was shocked to see the state of our most famous tourist site - toilets that a dog would hardly use, plus weeds everywhere and whitewash walls that needed to be whitewashed.

Would it be difficult to improve? I don't think so.



However, dare the Minister, Arlene Foster, hand over to a private developer an asset such as the Giant's Causeway visitors' centre, which is part of our heritage, just because land is owned near to the Causeway?

What happened to the architectural competition that took place for a visitors' centre?

Where is the response from Moyle District Council or the National Trust for that matter?

Does anybody really care?
