Government to committ to key projects during north/south talks

Politicians on both sides of the border have been urged to support the peace process.

The plea from the Taoiseach Brian Cowen, comes as his government meets his Northern counterparts for a series of cross-border talks.

Brian Cowen is expected to confirm that, despite the difficult economic climate, the Government will continue funding a number of cross-border initiatives, including the construction of a new road linking Monaghan to Letterkenny.
