Famous Visitors

Creggan Country Park has attracted a number of famous visitors over the years.

Former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds officially opened Creggan Country Inn on Wed 22nd March 2006. Speaking to guests at the launch which was also attended by Mayor Lynn Fleming, Mr Reynolds welcomed the Creggan Country Park development as an innovative and positive step towards the economic development of deprived areas of Northern Ireland, “My great belief is that we now need less politics and more economics to move forward in a positive way in Northern Ireland. This new enterprise at Creggan Country Park is a great example of how economic development can bring communities together and move the process forward.”

 Jack Charlton opened our original angling facility in 1992 on a break from his duties as manager of the Ireland soccer team. Huge crowds arrived in Creggan to give "Big Jack" a rapturous welcome.  The guest of honour was equally impressed.  Praising the beautiful sheltered valley at Creggan Country Park, happily noting "even in a howling gale, it is still fishable". Little wonder then that visitors travel from miles around.

Jack Charlton, May 1992
