Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has welcomed the comments from leader of Fianna Fáil Micheál Martin that the failure by the Irish Government to commit funding to the Narrow Water Bridge was a disgrace.

The bridge has been in the pipeline for decades

Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane stated, “During a debate on the North in the Dáil Micheál Martin leader of Fianna Fáil described the failure of the Irish government to commit funding to the Narrow Water Bridge as a disgrace.

“I welcome the fact that Mr Martin recognised the potential of the bridge to bring together the North and South in a political, social and economic way and opening up the entire South Down and North Louth area to development.

“The failure of the Irish Government to get behind the project was a major contributor in why it did not go ahead so we need to gather a political consensus both North and South that will allow us to bring together other funding to construct the bridge.

Ruane added, “The Narrow Water Bridge project can still be realised and I would call on Micheál Martin to join with Sinn Féin in the Dáil to see that funding is released so that the bridge can be built.”
