Liz Kimmins, Sinn Féin Councillor for Newry, has congratulated Newry, Mourne and Down Councillors last night after they formally rejected plans to build a 25ft wide bridge over Lindsay Hill.

Speaking following the decision, Kimmins said that the concerns of residents had been respected, and Councillors had recognised the rich history and heritage of the Lindsay Hill area.

“I am delighted that this disruptive bridge project has been formally rejected by Newry, Mourne and Down Councillors,” she told Newry Times.

“For many months I have been meeting with residents alongside other Sinn Féin Councillors to listen to the case for protecting the vibrant history and heritage of the Lindsay Hill site.

She added, “We will continue to engage with Lindsay Hill residents, and support the many initiatives taken by citizens to promote the important history of their area.”
