“Following a meeting of the Camlough Lake Committee I am delighted that the refurbishment of the lake remains on schedule,” she said.

“A few of the user groups of Camlough Lake had expressed concerns that the works would not be completed on time. I can now confirm that the contractor is confident that the lake will be ready well in advance of the 2017 triathlon.

“Furthermore, not only is the essential maintenance to be carried out but the money has been found to clad the reinforced concrete wall with stone to make the dam not only safe but also aesthetically pleasing.

“Since the merging of the two councils all of our Sinn Fein councillors have lobbied tirelessly to ensure that this beautiful area receives its fair share of funding and support to improve facilities, host events, attract tourism and give the area a much needed economic boost.

“I would hope that all accommodation providers, shops, restaurants and other businesses in the area will support and promote all of our events and of course, benefit as a result.”
