The SDLP has welcomed the selection of an official name for one of the Province’s new super authorities.

Newry, Mourne & Down District Council will be fully up and running in spring.

SDLP group leader Colin McGrath said: “Firstly I welcome this name as it can be identified by all residents across our district as it is essentially the amalgamation of the two legacy council names.”

The renaming is part of the move towards creating far fewer councils in the Province, by merging many of the existing ones together.
