30 June, 2009 - by Cathal Ó hOisín

East Derry Sinn Féin MLA, Francie Brolly has welcomed the official closure of the security compound at the Magilligan Ferry landing station.

Mr. Brolly said:

“Today the official closure of the security compound at Magilligan will be complete with the handover of the keys to the Ferry operator Jim McClenaghan. While this will remove the hassle created through this unwarranted obstacle to free travel between Magilligan and Moville I would appeal to the operator to ensure that the public toilets which are contained within this compound remain accessible to travelers.

“I would also like to thank Regional Development Minister, Conor Murphy without whose intervention this unilateral imposition of security measures between two places on the island of Ireland by the British authorities would still prevail.”
