McGreevy congratulates local winners of awards

The vast potential of Mountain Bike Trailing for the South Down area has been described as a huge tourism resource after both Rostrevor and Warrenpoint businesses scooped a raft of awards for promoting the sport.

And Councillor Connaire McGreevy said that the winning of the majority of the sectors in the Northern Ireland Mountain Bike awards has opened huge opportunities for generating inward tourism investment.

“It is a tremendous boost on a number of fronts, not just in terms of the actual sport and the trails in Kilbroney Park that service an ever increasing number of bikers but also for the spin-off for local pubs and restaurants as well as other parts of the economy,” the SDLP Councillor told Newry Times.

“We have a facility that is now recognised as being world class in terms of mountain biking. The development of the Kilbroney trails has added a new and exciting dimension to the tourism fabric of South Down. We have to continue thinking out of the traditional boxes when it comes to promoting our area.

“The fact that we are now clearly in the Premiership division of mountain biking with a world class stage to support the continued development of the sport is something that we must continue to promote.

McGreevy added, “As chair of Economic Development I want to personally congratulate the award winning businesses locally, Kilbroney Café and Rostrevor Holidays as well as the actual facility itself in Kilbroney Park.”
