Carlingford Lough and Foyle Consultation

Outdoor enthusiasts and those with a passion for Carlingford Lough and Lough Foyle are being provided with the opportunity to influence the future development of outdoor recreation opportunities in and around these picturesque waterways at two public consultation events.

Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland is carrying out a study of both areas on behalf of Lough’s Agency to feed into their forthcoming Development Directorate Strategic Plan 2015 – 2020. This plan will set out recommendations and actions for marine and coastal based recreation development in order to allow the Loughs to deliver improved opportunities for both tourists and the local communities.

As part of this study, Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland will be holding two public consultation events to discuss and capture a wide range of views on current and future outdoor recreation opportunities and facilities on and around these waterways.

Whether you are a sailor, cyclist, angler, canoeist, walker or just have a desire to see outdoor recreation grow in these areas, Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland is keen for you to come to the consultations to hear outline plans and share your own thoughts and ideas:

Carlingford  Lough (encompassing Cranfield to Newry to Ballagan Point)
