US special envoy to visit Donegal

It's emerged that the new US Special Envoy to the north is to visit Donegal. Declan Kelly was one of the keynote speakers at this week's British Irish Interparliamentary Asembley meeting in Cavan which was co-chaired by Donegal North East Deputy Niall Blaney.

Deputy Blaney says Mr Kelly has agreed to come to Donegal to discuss a number of issues, but also to tel politicians and business leaders that a more positive attitude towards business would attract more US investment.

Deputy Blaney says Declan Kelly is showing a very genuine interest in the border counties as well as Northern Ireland.
