Fermanagh Area Plan 2007
Economy: M1 Cement Industry

M1 Cement Industry
The Department will seek to balance the needs of the cement industry in south west Fermanagh with environmental protection.
The cement industry in Derrylin is recognised as an important source of employment in south west Fermanagh and a contributor to the regional economy. High purity limestone and suitable shales are essential for cement production. Both are available locally but from deposits of limited extent in areas of differing scenic character. The Department recognises the need for a continuing supply of those minerals and will seek to ensure that they are extracted in locations and under working arrangements which will minimise environmental effects.
