15 June, 2016 - by Seán Lynch


Sean Lynch MLA for Fermanagh South Tyrone has welcomed the announcement in the Finance Minister’s June Statement that £1.4m will go to enhance the work of Waterways Ireland.

Speaking today Mr Lynch said:

“The announcement that £1.4m will be allocated to enhance the work of Waterways Ireland is very welcome.

“It is the first capital allocation towards an all-Ireland body since 2010 and will undoubtedly make a difference to the sterling work of the organisation.

“Waterways Ireland has helped transform Lough Erne attracting countless tourists and continues to build on this success. You can now travel from Lough Erne to Dublin or Limerick by boat. 

“I look forward to a continued focus being placed on all-Ireland bodies such as Waterways Ireland in the coming Assembly term.”
