Conference set for September to explore opportunities in rural areas.

Rivers LinkA conference takes place in Ballybofey in September to explore opportunities in rural areas.

The conference coincides with the end of the River Links Project which involved neighbouring communities along the banks of the Finn and the Foyle working together on projects with funding from the EU.

The Initiatives included a community centre in Stranorlar, a walkway linking Clady and Doneyloop and a project to utilise the Foyle wetlands.

The conference takes place in the Villa Rose Hotel Ballybofey on September 17th.

Martin McAndrew is the River Links Project Manager:
