Irwin: Bomb attack could have been ‘deadly’
Newry and Armagh DUP Assemblyman William Irwin MLA has condemned those behind a failed bomb attack in Newry this week. The device, which was left on the Cloghogue Road near the Forkhill turn off, did not explode and was made safe by Army Technical Officers yesterday.
Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Irwin MLA stated, “This is the second such attack in the vicinity of the new road infrastructure at Newry in recent times and thankfully this device, which I understand was significant, did not explode.”
“Once again the people of Newry have been greatly inconvenienced by a very small and dangerous group intent on causing mayhem in Northern Ireland. Hopefully Police will be successful in their investigations into this attempted bombing and arrest those behind what could have been a very deadly attack,” he added.
