Tourism funding shortfall for Newry and Mourne

Despite boasting two areas of outstanding natural beauty Newry and Mourne is faring poorly in relation to Tourist Board funding latest figures show. In response to a question from Upper Bann MLA Jo-Anne Dobson (UUP) tourism Minister Arlene Foster confirmed the level of open call funding received by each of the existing 26 District Councils. The figures show that over a three year period the district comes seventh in the list of investment – well behind Belfast Derry and Coleraine and interestingly neighbouring Down District with whom Newry and Mourne will merge in April 2015.
