Sinn Fein Councillor Colman Burns has warned farmers to be extra vigilant and to ensure that they watch out for any suspicious activity in the countryside.

He was speaking after reports of the theft of three electric fences from two farms in the town land of Cloghoge, between Cullyhanna and Crossmaglen.

Speaking about the thefts, Burns explained,

“This latest incident comes as we move into the dark winter evenings and leaves a lot of farmers wondering how they can safeguard their belongings on isolated farms.

“I would urge everyone to watch out for each other and ensure that the culprits who are engaged in such actions are prevented from doing so. I would also ask farmers who are offered any cheap second hand electric fences, to question where it came from.”
