“I welcome this announcement by Minister Ó Muelloir that the impasse in ITEREGG’s £15million funding for the Greenway project in the NorthWest has been resolved.

“This now means that the proposed Greenways from Derry to Buncrana, Derry/Muff and Strabane/Lifford can now proceed.

“There had been some concern that this funding had been logjammed in the system but Minister Ó Muelloir has worked with the Irish government to have the funding released.

This has now been achieved and I look forward to these projects proceeding in the near future.”
