These discussions focused on addressing critical issues concerning Lough Neagh and fostering collaborative solutions. Key requests put forth by LNP include resolving the blue-green algae crisis, establishing an interdepartmental working group, implementing a navigation and dredging system for Lough Neagh, developing a new landscape conservation plan, and exploring options for ownership of the lough’s bed and soil. It is noteworthy that all meetings were constructive, with each party expressing a commitment to prioritize Lough Neagh in their agendas.
