Sinn Féin Councillor Anthony Flynn has condemned the latest dumping of cubes in south Armagh. In this incident, eight cubes of diesel waste were dumped at the end of Tievecrom Road, Forkhill.

Speaking to Newry Times, Flynn said, “It is a disgrace. Those who are responsible for discarding waste must cease.

“They are showing blatant disrespect for the people of this area and there have been too many incidents of fuel waste dumping in the last number of months.

“Our community does not want this, the minority involved behind this are destroying our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty whilst giving us a reputation that we do not deserve.

“These cubes have caused an inconvenience for the residents as they have blocked off part of the Tievecrom road.

Flynn added, “Toxic waste also causes harm to our environment and increases the cost of rate payer’s bills, as the removal of this waste is very expensive.

“Anyone involved in these actions show a total lack of respect for the people of south Armagh. I would appeal for them to stop and consider the effect they are having on both the environment and the residents.”
