The Kilcar Parish Council is disappointed at the news that the planned Sliabh Liag Distillery may be lost to this area.  The Kilcar Parish Council have been from the beginning unanimous in its support of this project that not only would provide direct employment but would add enormously to tourism in the area.  We wish James and Moira Doherty and their family the very best in the future.  We are pleased with the continued success of the gin distillery, located at Arrigle in the Kilcar Parish and hope that it may not be too late to save the whiskey distillery proposed for Clogher, Carrick.   We hope the community of both parishes avail of every opportunity to show their appreciation to Mr and Mrs Doherty for their commitment to the area and show the communities overwhelming support for this important project.
