Boost for S2s following DLRCC Elections –

In his acceptance speech following his election as Cathaoirleach of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council Cllr on 19th June 2017, Cllr Tom Murphy made the completion of the S2S his first priority:

“I suppose some of the things I’d like to see happen during my term of office and which I’d like to promote.  The first item I would like to see us promoting is the S2S; I think that it is really important that’s progressed very far throughout Dublin itself.  We’re very important and one of the final links of that and it’s something I think all the Members will agree that it would be something that would be fantastic from a tourism point of view but also linking the city and the people in general and we’d all like to promote.. “

Cllr Kate Feeney, who is a long term supporter of the S2S project, was elected Leas-Cathaoirleach and she also supported the project in her inauguration speech. Their statements are a welcome confirmation of the support that continues to exist across all of the main political parties for the S2S project. Backing at this level within the Council will be crucial in furthering the project in the next 12 months.
