South Dublin County Council wants to turn the area into a major tourist attraction with a €15m investment.

The planning proposal includes a visitor centre with a viewing platform.

But Fine Gael TD Colm Brophy is worried about the extra traffic it will bring to the area.

He said: "I think Dublin have put forward a scheme which could lead to a permanent gridlock situation on weekends and busy summer days."
