Gerry Adams TD meets New York State Comptrollers on Investment for Louth

20 July, 2017 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams recently met Thomas DiNapoli the New York State Comptroller to discuss possible investment opportunities in Louth.

The discussions focused on the political situation in the North of Ireland and the opportunities for New York State Pension Fund investment in County Louth and the border region.

Teachta Adams said;

“Tom DiNapoli has been New York State Comptroller for ten years. During that time we have met many times. The New York State Comptroller’s office manages the State’s estimated $192 billion pension fund (as of March 31. 2017).

"This includes investment’s in many of the US multi-nationals that are based on the island of Ireland.

"I gave the State Comptroller an update on the political situation in the North. We also discussed the potential impact of Brexit on the island of Ireland and especially for border counties like Louth.

"The Comptroller is always looking for investment opportunities for the pension funds that he manages and I urged him to look closely at the Louth region which is uniquely situated between Belfast and Dublin.

"Mr. DiNapoli was especially taken by the tourism potential for the east border region. From the Boyne Valley, up through the Cooleys and South Armagh to the Mourne Mountains and Carlingford Lough.”
