WHT loan secures Lough Foyle wildfowling land

397190113_0973e9a27eThe Wildlife Habitat Trust has granted a loan of £4,000 to the Lough Foyle Wildfowlers Association (LFWA) to help with the purchase of sporting rights for over 22 acres of land on Lough Foyle foreshore at Townland of Walworth.

The purchase will help to protect the club’s shooting opportunities and provide access to other shooting areas.

Terry Young, chairman of LFWA, said: “This has been a long and protracted transaction. Although a relatively small acreage, it was none the less vitally important because of its location. Being at the end of an access road, it provides unhindered access to other areas controlled by LFWA and ensures our sport will continue and flourish. Thanks to the hard work and persistence of ourselves, aided by the WHT and BASC, and especially Laura Morrison at the Lisburn office, we have overcome the problems and achieved a great result.”
