Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has welcomed the decision that a state of the art new leisure centre will be built in Dungiven.
The East Derry MLA said;
“The news that this long-awaited new Dungiven sports centre will go ahead will be widely welcomed in the local area.
“The local community have campaigned long and hard for this sports facility and tonight’s decision by Causeway Coast and Glens Council is great news.
“I recently hosted representatives of the local sports clubs who were involved in the campaign at Stormont and brought them to meet with my party colleagues deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness and Culture, Arts and Leisure Minister Carál Ní Chuilín.
“The majority of the funding for this project is coming from Carál Ní Chuilín and is further evidence of Sinn Féin’s commitment to invest in leisure and strengthen local communities.”
