Ritchie invites Cameron to South Down
SDLP South Down MP Margaret Ritchie has invited Prime Minister David Cameron to visit the constituency to witness the legacy of the area’s Patrician heritage.
Speaking afterwards, Ms Ritchie said: “The Patrician and Early Christian heritage in South Down is one of our key selling points, not only as a tourist destination but also in terms of the message that Patrick has delivered through the ages in the promotion of peace and reconciliation.”
“With tensions always heightened at this time of the year, I felt it important to reiterate the timeless message of Patrick to the Prime Minister as we continue along the path to reconciliation and a shared society.”
She added, “I am pleased that he said if he could accept the invitation he would, and I hope that arrangements can be made during his next visit to the North to have him explore St Patrick’s Country and the beauty of the Mournes.”
