1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Assembly candidate Cathal Ó hOisín responding to the SDLP Gerry Mullan’s article has said

Mr Ó hOisín said,

“This is typical SDLP rhetoric from Gerry Mullan and his claims that Sinn Féin have not delivered for East Derry

“The record shows that his claims are completely unfounded and while the SDLP talk about others Sinn Féin have been busy delivering for the entire and will continue to do so.

“Through the DRD Committee I have ensured progress on the upgrade of the Derry to Coleraine railway line and the money for the Dungiven bypass, work and dualling of the A6 has now been secured.

“Sinn Féin ministers have also invested heavily in East Derry from the DARD headquarters relocating to Ballykelly, and the recent announcement of the potential of 1000 new jobs on the site

“Caral Ni Chuilín, the Leisure Minister has provided the funding for the new sports facilities in Dungiven and John O’Dowd allocated funding to St. Mary’s Limavady for a new gym as well as the upgrade of many other schools.

“The provision of an Irish medium school in Dungiven also shows the commitment of Sinn Féin of protecting and developing our national language.

“The Sinn Féin Agriculture minister has invested heavily in Rural development including increased broadband coverage, transport arrangement for rural users and protecting local services.

“In health we have ensured that a new cancer treatment centre was earmarked for Altnagelvin in order to service the people of the North West and invested more money in the Health Department despite a cut to the block grant. Maybe Councillor Mullan can explain why the SDLP voted against giving health more money?

“The Minister has also worked hard for farmers to ensure early payment for the Single Farm Payment, opened up new markets and worked hard tp ensure fair prices for their goods.

“The Executive has also instigated a new enterprise zone in Coleraine to develop indigenous businesses and create employment

“These are just some examples of our actions, can Cllr. Mullan tell us how they have helped the people of East Derry?”
