Moville City of Culture meeting deferred as locals urged to start planning now

A meeting which was to have taken place this afternoon in Moville to discuss how the area can benefit from Derry's designation as UK City of Culture 2013 has been postponed until the new year, but the organisers say this gives an opportunity to prepare more ideas.

The meeting organisers Moville Inishowen Action say Moville and East Inishowen are in a very good position to benefit from what's happening in Derry, but the extent to which that happens will depend on the effort put in now by the community.

Spokesperson Katrina Doherty says the Clipper Yacht Race in 2012 and the City of Culture events have huge potential, and now is the time to start preparing.............
