C9241 : Sea defences, Portballintrae (1)
3 km from Bushmills, Ireland
Sea defences, Portballintrae
The sea defences at Portballintrae, mainly wooden groynes, seem to date from the 1990’s. The construction of a small pier, at the western side of the bay, is said to have “focused wave action and led to erosion of the beach. This in turn led to increased wave attack on the soft cliffs behind the beach which was addressed by a scheme of dewatering and stabilisation of the cliffs and construction of sea defences. More recently, the sea defences have been extended and a series of groynes emplaced to try to trap sand in the bay”. The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of record only. I have no professional knowledge of sea defence construction.
