SDLP MLA for South Down Sean Rogers has condemned those responsible for cutting down Gaelic football posts at a Council facility on Carrigenagh road in Kilkeel.

Speaking to Newry Times, Rogers said, “These gaelic football posts were erected over a year ago to facilitate Ballymartin GAC as their pitch is currently being reinstated.

“This unfortunately is not the first occasion when the posts have been cut down. There is no place for politics in sport and those that commit such an act of wanton vandalism are trying to divide the community.

“The posts will be replaced and those behind this vandalism should see the futility of their actions. The wider community is united in its revulsion for acts of vandalism which only attempt to stir up trouble and divide the people of this area.

Rogers added, “I would urge anyone with any information to come forward to the PSNI so that those who are responsible can be apprehended.”
