EU money for Fermanagh caves will benefit local economy

1 October, 2004

Sinn Féin Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew has welcomed the announcement that the EU is to support the development of the Fermanagh caves with £1 million.

Ms Gildernew said:

"This is fantastic news for Fermanagh. The tourist potential of the caves, the lakes and indeed the history of Fermanagh have never been given the level of investment it deserves. This investment will benefit the entire local economy.

"It is vital that at local council level and within an All Ireland strategy that Fermanagh gets its fair share of investment. We also need to see significant investment in the transport infrastructure and in the capacity of the hospitality industry.

"Fermanagh has the product. With this investment we are in an even stronger position to sell the area as a key destination for both tourist visitors and crucially as a great place for investment." ENDS
