Donald Trump bailed out of Scotland after losing a legal battle against a wind farm being built off the coast of his Aberdeen property.  Now it appears he could face a new wind farm headache at Doonbeg.

As STV reports, there are plans in place for nine 85m turbines near the Co Clare venue with a planning decision due on March 30:

The application, by Clare Coastal Wind Power Ltd, states: "For grant of a ten year planning permission for development at a site in the townlands of Carrowmore South, Einagh and Shragh, approximately 2 km south of the village of Doonbeg.

"The development will comprise nine electricity generating wind turbines with a hub height of up to 85 metres and a rotor diameter of up to 82 metres giving an overall height of up to 126m, hardstandings, a control building, an electrical compound, a permanent meteorological mast, associated site roads, drainage and site works.

"The planning application is accompanied by an Environmental Impact Statement ( EIS ) and a Natura Impact Statement ( NIS )."

No doubt Mr Trump will have a view on the matter when we get to Doral for the WGC-Cadillac Championship.
