Interesting piece on one of Northern Ireland’s largest and most ignored natural assets, according to Gary Grattan.

“LOUGH Neagh – at 152 square miles the largest inland area of water in the UK – is not being exploited to its full tourism potential. “Sensitively and sensibly handled, the marketing of Lough Neagh as a recreational waterway is not in any way detrimental of ecological aspects of the lough. “The development will also create wealth in the surrounding areas via the influx of local and international visitors and job creation, which in turn can be ploughed back into the stewardship of Lough Neagh,” said David Burnside MP.
