The community in Valentia will learn later this month if their bid to have the Transatlantic Cable Station join the prestigious UNESCO world heritage site list has been successful.

Fine Gael TD and Deputy Government Chief Whip, Brendan Griffin, has received confirmation from the Minister for Heritage that the tentative list of new projects that Ireland intends to put forward for UNESCO status will be announced this month and hopes are high in Valentia that they will be included on the list which would transform the future of the island.
