Patrick Brown Backs Support for Kilkeel Harbour Expansion

Patrick Brown MLA last week met with Kilkeel Development Association and Alan McCulla of Sea Source at Kilkeel Harbour to discuss plans to expand the harbour.

Mr Brown said: ‘It was great to be in Kilkeel to discuss the positive plans for community development here – particularly the ambitious plans for the harbour. I look forward to pushing the expansion of the outer harbour to ensure that the project can advance and bring significant benefits to the local fishing community, tourism sector and our local economy. Kilkeel Harbour has fantastic potential for our area and will secure jobs and investment in South Down for generations.’

He added: ‘I will continue to keep pressure on the DAERA Minister to move this project forward, as well as pushing for much needed investment in Ardglass Harbour to safeguard the future of our fishing communities across South Down.’

ENDS
