Locals in the seaside area of Marble Hill are not happy with an influx of visiting surfers despite Covid travel restrictions.
A large number of surfers have been spotted on the beach over the weekend, many of whom are not understood to be from the immediate area, according to locals.
One local contacted Donegal Daily saying they are annoyed and disappointed that a small minority are ignoring Government guidelines.
Bollards erected by Donegal County Council blocking access to the beach with notice signs were shoved to one side.
One local said that it is NOT the local surf schools involved in the incident but individuals and small groups coming from outside the area.
The woman said “We are delighted most of the time to see people using this amazing natural resource but not at present.
“You only have to look at the cars and their registrations to see they are not from around here. People need to wise-up and obey the laws.
“There are people dying and our infection rates from Covid is going through the roof and all these people can think about is traveling and having a surf.
“They may not think they are doing any harm by coming to a beach and using the fresh air but the vast majority of us are obeying the law.
“Who knows where they stopped off on the way here and what risks they have taken with other people’s health.”
The woman said that Gardai have been contacted about the large number of surfers using the area.
