Poleglass MLA to welcome Taoiseach

3 November, 2005

Sinn Féin MLA Michael Ferguson has welcomed the visit of Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to Poleglass. The local MLA will be there to meet with him and intends to speak to him about the regeneration of the area and the deficit of resources in the area.

Commenting on the meeting Michael Ferguson said,

"The visit by the Taoiseach to the Colin Neighbourhood a community characterised by multiple deprivation is most welcome.

"I recently visited the Ballymun Regeneration Board to look at how the Dublin government and Dublin City council worked with the Community and the Private sector to ensure the integrated delivery of investment to the area and areas like Poleglass and Twinbroook need the same commitment.

"I am hopeful that today's meeting will herald greater co-operation and the sharing of good practice and I hope that other cross boarder meetings can follow." ENDS
