Anderson says Letterkenny/Derry link with NI Science Park will bring jobs to NW

Foyle MLA Martina Anderson says the partnership is now considering the feasibility of establishing a North West Regional Science Park on the former army base, with it and Letterkenny I.T. acting as satellites of the Belfast park.
