Transport Minister Danny Kennedy has insisted the Lough Foyle Ferry must pay its own way and will not be receiving any subvention in the immediate future.

Mr Kennedy said he was aware the company was awarded a licence by Limavady Borough Council and Donegal County Council to run the Magilligan Greencastle service for three years from 2013.

“It is my understanding that the license to run the service was awarded on the basis that the service would not be supported financially by either Limavady Borough Council or Donegal County Council and that its operation would be financed solely through fare revenue,” he said.
