‘More tea Minister?’
Thursday, 15 December 2016
THE ECONOMY, community and tourist trade are all set to benefit from a £1million major refurbishment of the Manor House on Rathlin Island, Rural Development Minister Michelle McIlveen said as she officially opened the iconic listed building. The Rathlin Development and Community Association (RDCA) was awarded £734,000 from the Coastal Communities Fund, in addition to £250,000 from DAERA's Tackling Rural Poverty and Social Isolation (TRPSI) Programme to complete the refurbishment project.
Michelle McIlveen visited the Island last Wednesday to officially open the Manor House alongside islanders and newly appointed operators Genevieve and Brian McLarnon, from Ballycastle.
Officially opening the Manor House, Michelle McIlveen said: "I had the opportunity of visiting Rathlin in August to see the progress being made on projects that are being delivered by the Executive, in partnership with the RDCA, which will improve the lives of islanders and deliver social and economic benefits.
