Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has said that there was universal agreement today between all attendees of a meeting convened to discuss the Narrow Water Bridge to call an urgent meeting with the Taoiseach Enda Kenny. Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane stated, “At a meeting today held in Stormont attended by Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, Sinn Féin, SDLP, Newry and Louth Councils and the local Chambers of Commerce it was agreed that we seek an urgent meeting with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny. “It was a very positive meeting where Martin McGuinness reiterated his continued support for the Narrow Water Bridge. This bridge can be constructed in the near future if the political will exists as we continue to have cross border and cross party support “It was also agreed that the Narrow Water Bridge remains a priority for the people of South Down and County Louth and is a viable project if the Irish Government step up to the mark. The group also agreed to ask for a meeting with the Office of the First and deputy First Minister in order to bolster the bid. Ruane added, “It is important that we confirm the cocktail of funding so that we can begin construction and the Taoiseach holds the key to bringing all the necessary funding together.” More on this story: Bridge over troubled water swept aside after EU withdraws £15m funding
