Short Strand residents call for Barracks site

Conor Keenan (Short Strand Residents Association) Bernie McConnell (Short Strand Community Forum) Joe O'Donnell (Short Strand Partnership) Myself, Patrick Devlin (St Matthews Housing Association)
Various groups from the Short Strand gathered at the 'Lighthouse Building' in Belfast's Gasworks, the headquarters of the Department for Scoial Development.
We were there to submit a joint letter calling on Housing Minister Margaret Ritchie to acquire the land at Mountpottinger Barracks (following it's closure in August) urgently for the development of social and family homes.
The letter also called for a meeting with the Minister seeking to explore the potenial for development on the site in the very near future.
Go n-éirí linn!
