Sinn Féin MPs to raise A5 and Narrow Water Bridge at Oireachtas GFA meeting

4 February, 2015 - by Pat Doherty


Sinn Féin MPs Pat Doherty, Michelle Gildernew and Conor Murphy will be in Leinster House tomorrow for the Oireachtas Good Friday Agreement Committee meeting at which the A5 road and Narrow  Water bridge projects will be on the Agenda for discussion.

Speaking before travelling to Dublin, West Tyrone MP Pat Doherty said:

“I welcome the fact that these two significant projects are on the agenda of the Oireachtas Committee. It will afford us the opportunity to press the Minister on assurances given by the Irish government at the recent Stormont House negotiations.

“The A5 and Narrow Water Bridge are hugely important infrastructure projects that will provide much needed jobs for regions of the country starved of economic investment for generations.

“Their construction will give a significant boost to the local economy and open up the Newry, Mourne and Louth district and the region from Monaghan to Derry/Donegal to both commercial investment and tourism potential. Every effort must be made to ensure that both these projects are progressed with the utmost urgency.”
