Waterways Ireland hosting meeting to discuss recreational opportunities on Lough Erne
Waterways Ireland would like to develop a “Blueway” on the Erne navigation and are planning to hold a meeting of all stakeholders on Tuesday 24th May at 7.30 pm in Waterways Ireland Headquarters, 2 Sligo Road, Enniskillen.
Waterways Ireland is one of the six North/South Implementation Bodies established under the British Irish Agreement in 1999. Its remit is to manage, maintain, develop and promote over 1,000 km of inland navigable waterways, principally for recreational purposes.
One of those navigable waterways is the Erne waterway. In order to fulfil the remit, Waterways Ireland’s vision is the development of recreational, heritage and environmental opportunities that link people, history and nature, providing both local communities and visitors with compelling reasons to spend more time in the waterways environment. In this way local communities and visitors can experience the wide spectrum of life that the waterways has to offer and in doing so provide economic, community and social regeneration to areas.
Please phone 028 6634 6216 or 028 6634 6266 if you wish to attend by Friday 20th May.
