Hope for Newry connection to Project Kelvin – Murphy

24 August, 2009 - by Westminster


Sinn Féin MP for Newry and Armagh, Conor Murphy has said that a meeting with senior executives from Hibernia, the group contracted to roll out Project Kelvin, was extremely positive. Mr Murphy met the group along with the local Chamber of Commerce and a number of local businesses.

Speaking after the meeting Mr. Murphy said,

“Following this positive meeting, I am confident that Newry can be connected to Project Kelvin. While some work remains to be done I believe that it is achievable for Newry to become a Point of Presence in the project.

“Newry’s participation in the project would allow the area to attract large knowledge-based companies to the area, and would facilitate the promotion of Newry as a business centre on the main route between the two largest cities on this island.

“In this difficult economic climate it is vital that we continue to promote Newry as a business centre in order to spur economic growth and employment in this area.” ENDS
