Refresh your memory, Mr Coyle

Dear Madam, - I have to say I was both bemused and amused by John Coyle’s recent comments about “neglect” and a “lack of vision” on tourism in Fermanagh during my tenure as Minister at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment. Laughably, Mr Coyle also alleges there has been no enthusiasm on my part for promoting tourism in Fermanagh.

Work of the country roads litter louts exposed

Dear Madam - Walk or cycle along most of our local country roads on a sunny breezy March day and our eyes are most likely to be irritated by the sight of the shining metal of coke cans, beer cans and plastic bottles of different shapes and sizes, and add in the crumpled “take away” food boxes.

Courthouse closure will deny and delay justice

Dear Madam, - The intention of David Ford, the Minister of Justice for Northern Ireland, to close Enniskillen Courthouse, is as stupid as the decision of a former Government of Northern Ireland to close the important rail link to Enniskillen in 1957.
