Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MP Conor Murphy has visited the Armagh Observatory this week to offer full and continued support to the campaign to secure funding for its long-term future.

Speaking after meeting management at the Observatory for the first time Mr Murphy said:

"The uncertainty surrounding the future of the Armagh Observatory cannot go on.

"This is the first time that I have met the management at the Observatory and I will be taking a personal interest to ensure that this essential part of Armagh's heritage is safe.

"The Observatory is also a key part of our local tourism infrastructure and a renowned international research institute." ENDS
