Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed his support for the construction of the Narrow Water Bridge linking south Down and County Louth.

Gerry Adams said: “The Narrow Water Bridge makes economic and commercial sense. It would provide a vital infrastructure connection linking north and south which would assist economic, and especially tourism development in an area which desperately needs new investment for jobs and growth.

“There is widespread political and public support for the development, including from local councils and the two governments.”

Previously Cllr. Jim Loughran said “There is widespread support for the Bridge. We are here to make sure that we can contribute to the building of this bridge, its construction will make a very positive impact for Louth and South Down”

“Last week we were in Warrenpoint and got very strong support.”

A decision is due on the bridge by 5 July.
