“The Foyle Cup is a great competition and is also a great showcase for Derry. I would like to wish the organisers and participants involved in this year’s event all the best as they get ready for the week long programme.

“And I encourage the people of the city to give it as much support as possible.

“The opening parade is always a colourful spectacle and sends out a great positive image for our city and in particular our young people,” he said.
