Official Opening of the A1/N1 Newry Dundalk Link Road

2 August 2007

East Border Region Committee members were delighted to be present at the official opening of the A1/N1 Newry Dundalk Link Road yesterday. The Committee are particulary delighted to see this major cross border project come to fruition as it has been at the heart of EBRC's lobbying for a number of years.

The road link which was officially opening by Mr Dermot Ahern, T.D., Minister for Foreign Affairs and Mr Conor Murphy, M.P., MLA, Minister for Regional Development completes the first major inter urban route from Dubin to the Border and actively demonstrates the success that can be achieved through cross border partnership.
