Sinn Féin Councillor Sean Doran has condemned those responsible for fly tipping in the Mournes area.

Speaking to Newry Times, Doran commented, “Fly tipping has once again turned a beautiful area of the Mourne countryside into an eyesore and it is simply unacceptable. Both industrial and household waste have been dumped on the Benagh Road in Kilkeel.

“What is especially worrying is that this area is one of the main roads to Cranfield, a popular area with tourists. The last thing the tourist industry in the area needs is to be damaged by the irresponsible action of those committing the fly tipping and portraying a poor image of the Mournes.

He added, “I would ask anyone who witnesses any of this illegal activity to report it to the councils environmental department as this behaviour can only be stopped with the assistance of the public.”
