Sinn Féin MLA’s and councillors in the Newry and Mourne and Armagh areas have urged people to be wary during the festive season. Speaking on behalf of his colleagues in the Assembly, the council and Sinn Féin, Conor Murphy said, “Christmas is a family time, it gives people an opportunity to come together and spend time at home with loved ones. It is also traditionally a time when people exchange gifts with friends and family. It can also be a dangerous time on our roads due to bad weather. Motorists should slow down if conditions are bad or not venture out at all. It goes without saying that people should never drink and drive.”

Murphy continued, “I hope most people in our area enjoy the Christmas Holidays but I am mindful that for some Christmas is a difficult time. Financial or health worries can be highlighted at this time as can the loss of loved ones who are no longer with us. I urge people to call with elderly neighbours over the festive period to make sure that they are safe and well, for some you could be their only visitor over Christmas.”

The Assembly Member added, “In addition I would like to take this opportunity to thank local Sinn Féin activists and all community representatives for the work they have done over the past year. Many times their efforts go unnoticed so this is an opportune time to say thank you and well done and wish everyone, Nollaig Shona agus Athbhliain faoi Mhaise Duit.”
