Meigh surgery ‘back on track’

South Armagh MLA Megan Fearon has said she is delighted to be able to confirm that work on the long awaited Meigh Surgery has started again.

The south Armagh village of Meigh“I have received confirmation from the contractor that they are back on site and the project is moving ahead,” she said.

“This is very welcome news indeed. The people of Meigh have been putting up with substandard facilities for far too long.

“Sinn Féin has been campaigning for an adequate, modern facility here for some 10 years now while I myself have been in constant engagements with the Department, Health Board, the doctor and the people of the area over the course of the past few years about it.

“While people will of course be happy to have a the new facility up and running there will also be relief that the half finished site, which had been something of an eyesore, not to mention dangerous for young children playing in the area, will be back in business after two and a half years.”

May June 2016Councillor Liz Kimmins said the party would stay on top of the issues to ensure its completion. “We went in to the recent elections promising to put health at the top of our agenda and I think this project shows that no matter how challenging an issue is, Sinn Féin will stick with it until we get a result for the people.

She added, “We will of course be keeping up to date with progress on the site to ensure its completion goes smoothly and there are no further delays or problems.”
