Chuir an ionadaí áitiúil de chuid Shinn Féin Conor D. McGuinness fáilte roimh mhaoiniú €112,500 chun oibreacha a bhaint amach ar Ché Heilbhic, ach dúirt sé gur cheart tús áite a thabhairt d’iascairí.

Dúirt McGuinness:

‘Tá sé thar ama roinnt infheistíocht a fháilt do Heilbhic agus cuirim fáilte roimh an maoiniú seo. Dúirt an tAire go mbeadh béim ar leith ar infreastruchtúir do thuraseoirí agus táim go láidir den tuairim gur cheart freastal sa chéad áit ar iascairí inbhuanaithe áitiúla. Tá iascairí na háite i dteideal áit sabháilte agus inrochtana chun a gcuid oibre a bhaint amach.’

‘Ba cheart cluas éisteachta a thabhairt d’iascairí ó thús an tionscadail.’

 

€112,500 funding for Cé Heilbhic welcome but precedence must be given to fishermen – McGuinness 

Sinn Féin local election candidate Conor D. McGuinness has welcomed funding of €112,500 to under take works at Cé Heilbhic, but said that local fishermen should be foremost in any planning.

McGuinness said:

‘This investment in Heilbhic has been a long time coming and I welcome the funding.

‘In his comments the Minister said that there will be an emphasis on tourist infrastructure, however I am of the opinion that works should first focus on local, sustainable fishermen who are entitled to a safe and accessible fisheries harbour.

‘Fishermen must be consulted and listened to from the outset.’
