Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being myself

Model of the bridge built by Pat Rice and will be on display at the Yuletide Fayre on Sunday.

At 12 noon on Tuesday the 26th of November the Narrowwater Bridge Action Group, the chambers of commerce in the Newry and Mourne district and business leaders from both sides of Carlingford lough have gathered to express their bitter disappointment and deep frustration at the lack of engagement of the governments in both parts of this island in the Narrowwater bridge project

Both sides have in recent days expressed their commitment to the bridge project but to date none have put a firm monetary commitment on the table. The leadership has come from the three local authorities Newry and Mourne district council, Down district council and Louth County council who have put a firm monetary commitment on the table.

In light of the speech of the first minister Peter Robinson, the utopia he spoke of at his party’s conference seems to be totally at odds to the feeling on the ground in this area of South Down.

We the business and community leaders are gathered here to show our support for this worthy project.

We ask the governments in both jurisdictions to engage in meaningful dialogue for the sake of business and employment in our areas.

Well said, Brian.

Seems like we are hanging on the
last strand of what once was a
rope of hope.

Still time for common sense to prevail.

Any mileage in the Private Finance option?
