Sinn Fein Councillors Colman Burns and Terry Hearty have supported a request to rebuild the one remaining block wall at Creggan Bridge and replace it in stone. The wall in question is a continuation of the bridge wall and is on the village side of the Newry Road. The wall, originally built to stop vehicular traffic accessing the old road, has one opening for pedestrians.

Councillor Burns said that replacing the wall would be a nice way to complete the ongoing works at the bridge. “Creggan Community Association has been very active in enhancing the village in many ways. They have instilled a great pride in the residents and to replace this wall with a stone wall, in keeping with the bridge, would be a nice reward for their ongoing work and would send out a signal of support for all their endeavours,” he said.

Councillor Hearty echoed his words, “Creggan Community Association has been successful in Tidy Village competitions anytime they have entered. They have sourced funding to do many projects in the village. Erecting a stone wall in place of the present wall would bring completion to the works and complement the projects that the Association have done in the past.”
