Cross border ferry veto angers Hyland
Independent republican councillor Davy Hyland has said he is disappointed that sponsorship for the Greencastle-Greenore ferry has failed to materialise due to what he described as a ‘lack of support from certain councillors’ in Newry & Mourne District Council. Speaking to Newry Times, Hyland said, “This was a great opportunity that would have been beneficial for the area in terms of tourism and employment as it had the potential to create over 30 jobs. This would have provided an opportunity for tourists and members of the public to travel from Greenore in the South to Greencastle in the North using the ferry.”
Davy continued “The Mourne Mountains are one of the most scenic and beautiful areas in Ireland and this would have had great benefits for the area. Given the high unemployment levels it would also have created much needed jobs for people. Hopefully in the future this project can be relaunched for the betterment of the area and local communities on both sides of the border”.
