Ruane welcomes Finance Minister support for Narrow Water Bridge
Sinn Féin MLA for South Down, Caitríona Ruane, has welcomed the continued support for the Narrow Water Bridge Project from the new Finance Minister, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir.
Speaking following today's Finance Committee where the minister agreed to meet with campaigners Ms Ruane said:
“The economic and tourist potential for the people of south Down and north Louth with the completion of the Narrow Water Bridge project is an opportunity not to be missed.''
“The entire Carlingford Lough area could benefit from this much needed bridge and the economic impact would go far beyond the immediate Warrenpoint/Omeath areas.
“I welcome the fact that the Finance Minister has said he is supportive of the project and has agreed to visit the proposed Narrow Water Bridge site and meet with campaigners.”
