Ruane disappointed with cross-border bridge failure
Warrenpoint based Sinn Fein Councillor Mickey Ruane has expressed his disappointment at the failure of the Narrow Water Bridge project after it failed to make the final round of the Interreg IVA funding call.
Speaking to Newry Times the Sinn Fein representative said, “It has been well documented the benefits to the entire area of the bridge project. Louth County and Newry & Mourne District Councils will attend a de-brief with SEUPB, the body responsible for the delivery of funding to see where the bid fell short. There is a determination from all to move ahead and look to the next funding opportunity in 2015 (interreg v).”
He added, “This Friday a meeting will take place in Warrenpoint, bringing together political representatives and both Councils as guests of Warrenpoint, Burren and Rostrevor Chamber of commerce to press ahead with promoting and supporting the bridge project.”
