22 September, 2014 - by Cathal Ó hOisín

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has welcomed Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín's commitment to the development of sporting facilities in Dungiven and Coleraine. 

Speaking after asking the minister a question in the Assembly this morning, the East Derry MLA said; 

"I asked Carál Ní Chuilín for an update on the development of sporting facilities in Dungiven and Coleraine following the decision of the Causeway Coast and Glens Council. 

"The decision by the new super council to delay and defer any decision on the matter caused considerable anger in the Dungiven area. 

"I welcome the minister's commitment that both these projects are interdependent and would be funded from the City of Culture legacy monies. 

"I will continue to ensure the delivery of both these much-needed facilities for the people of Dungiven and Coleraine. 

"There will also be an Assembly debate on the matter on September 30th."
