Launch of West Cork Islands Strategy

Minister for Community, Equality & Gaeltacht Affairs, Mr. Pat Carey, T.D launches the West Cork Islands Integrated Development Strategy in Bantry.

The Strategy was developed by a local interagency group through the auspices of the Cork County Development Board to provide a framework for the physical, economic, social and cultural development of the islands for the next ten years and beyond.

The Strategy provides an opportunity for us all to take stock and be more mindful of this magnificent resource we have here in west cork and to develop a number of key priorities for the islands over the next number of years, I have every confidence that this initiative will be a huge success.
