He was speaking after a meeting at Parliament Buildings with the Social Development Minister Mrevyn Storey, Mark H Durkan Minister for the Environment, Eddie Curtis, Director of Strategic Planning for Newry, Mourne, and Down Council, Karen Mc Kevitt MLA, and Bosco club officials. Bradley said, “The Clubrooms Project is very important to the St John Bosco GFC in Newry and will give much needed facilities to players across the playing age groups, club members, supporters, and spectators, especially those who are older will also benefit from the development. “For many decades Bosco GFC has been providing a superb sporting service on a voluntary basis to the people of Newry,” he continued. “The club has invested a considerable portion of its own funds in the development and design of the Clubrooms Project which now needs the benefit of public funding to see it through to fruition. “I was very pleased with the positive attitude displayed by Minister Storey towards the project and I am confident that he will strive to assist the Club to the maximum extent possible within the resources available to him. “Minister Durkan, who has already assisted the club with land issues, also expressed his strong support for the project,” Bradley revealed. Karen Mc Kevitt also spoke to Newry Times after the meeting. “Minister Storey has given a firm undertaking to meet again in September to review progress and in the interim the Club will engage with the Council through Mr Curtis and his staff to examine various models of development and of funding. “This was a very positive meeting and shows every sign that things are heading in the right direction and I thank all those who contributed to its success including DSD official Mr Jerome Burns.”
