As Chairperson of the campaign to bring Public Sector Jobs to Down District, Cadogan organises launch of Down’s ‘sales brochure’ with help of MLA’s John McCallister, Chris Hazzard and Finance Minister Simon Hamilton.
5,500 people commute daily to Belfast for work – overwhelmingly in the public sector – Downs Public Sector Campus would provide a far more sustainable location for these jobs – drastically reducing congestion in Belfast and locally and giving a boost to local businesses who would no longer see the spending power of the District commuting to Belfast..

Cllr Cadogan Enright says that the St. Patrick’s Day Parade should be held on Sunday rather than Saturday or Monday so that traders will not be penalized by having their busy shopping days affected by it.


I delivered my annual report to all 10,000 houses in the Lecale Downpatrick electoral area  towards the end of June 2013.

In line with previous practice, I have produced a newsletter for both the rural area of Lecale LECALE VERSION OF ANNUAL REPORT TO CONSTITUENTS 2012 / 2013 PUBLISHED JUNE 2013


This is my seventh annual report. I am the only councillor in Down to do an annual report to my constituents.  Clearly these newsletters can only be a snapshot of my work as a councillor, but the newsletters point to this website that is updated weekly and monthly with my ongoing progress of my various campaigns and my representation of my constituents requirements.

I hope you find them useful.


More Buses for Raholp and Saul

More Buses for Raholp and Saul

Councilor Cadogan Enright has succeeded in persuading Translink to significantly increase services to Saul and Raholp following the expiry of the current summer schedule.

Cllr Enright said, “Last year local people in Raholp and Saul contacted me about how silly they felt it was that so many Translink buses by-passed the two villages along the main road to Strangford.


Following meetings with local Translink management in January, I arranged to travel with them on the routes, timing different variations. We did this last month, driving the different route options between Downpatrick and Strangford.


Currently only 5 of these services are routed through Raholp and Saul. The other six services by-pass the villages and head down along the main Downpatrick / Strangford Road. Both sets of buses are also timed to meet the Ferry in Strangford, and this has to be taken into account also.


Following our examination of available routes, Translink conducted a detailed survey of the Strangford – Downpatrick route to see how many of the 11 buses per day can be routed through the two villages. Services have been routed along the main Road to accommodate children in getting to school in Strangford, but there are currently no children using this service along that stretch of road. Some services may have to be retained in case this changes in September.

The results of Translink’s survey are now in, and it has been confirmed to me that this will result in several more buses per day routed though Raholp and Saul from late September when we will be able to assess the school transport situation. This is a great result from 9 months of effort on this issue.”

I have met with local residents to brief them on this development and they were delighted. We have one outstanding issue with Translnk, namely the location of the Bannaghan Road bus stop which was moved by Roads Service well away from Bannagahn Road. Translink management are currently looking into this issue.”.,Concluded Cll Enright
