Sports clubs, community groups and residents are being encouraged to attend a public meeting tonight about a proposed multi-million pound sports and community project in Dungiven.

The meeting will be held in Dungiven Sports Pavilion tonight at 7.30pm.

Among those in attendance will be officials from from Causeway, Coast and Glens Council, and local councillors.

Sinn Féin councillor Sean McGlinchey said the meeting is to discuss a proposed new state-of-the-art sports and community facilities for the town.

Colr. McGlinchey said £2.5 million in funding has been secured from the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL) and said the meeting will allow groups an opportunity to have their say on the plans.

Colr. Dermot Nicholl said those in attendance will be given the options on different proposals for the project, which may include options for Curragh Road for a sports hall and pitches.

The meeting will be held tonight (Monday) at 7.30pm.
