Sinn Féin Cllr Michael Ruane has welcomed the news that Kilbroney has been provisionally successful in its bid to host part of the World Police and Fire Games which come to Northern Ireland in 2013.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane said, “This is fantastic news for the district and it offers us an opportunity to show the world what Warrenpoint, Rostrevor and South Down as a whole has to offer. The natural scenic beauty of this vibrant place is in my opinion one of the best places in the world and I am personally glad we have this opportunity to showcase it to the participants and spectators of the World Police and Fire Games.”
“Kilbroney will be the perfect location to host the Mountain Bike Downhill and Cross Country competition and I know that the bid has been provisionally successful pending the completion of a mountain bike trail to facilitate the event. This will be a unique opportunity for us and I am calling on Newry and Mourne Council to facilitate these events as a matter of priority to ensure everything is ready to host the games.”
Ruane continued, “I wish to commend all those who worked tirelessly to bring this event to Kilbroney and I know that the hard work is only really starting now in bringing this to fruition.
“This will be a welcome boost for the tourism and hospitality industries across South Down which has suffered so much in the last while and I welcome the much needed boost that they will receive from this.”
