SDLP Newry Councillor Kevin McAteer has expressed his concern at the recent stabbing of a woman in the Mourneview area of newry. “News of a stabbing has deeply shocked this community, this is a close knit area and local people are understandably shaken by the incident. “My thoughts and prayers are with the victim and her family at this difficult time. I want to be clear, however, that this is an isolated incident and is totally unreflective of the character of this community and the people here,” he insisted. “The Mourneview Community Association has undertaken some excellent work in the area and I will continue to support that. “Every area has to contend with anti-social behaviour and I will be working pro-actively with residents, local neighbourhood police officers and those involved to ensure it comes to an end. “It is imperative that we seek urgent action to address the deep concerns that residents have come to me with. In the coming days I intend to meet with representatives of Ulidia Housing Association to ensure that their worries no longer fall on deaf ears. McAteer added, “We all have a role to play in making our communities better, more harmonious places to live. I will certainly be playing my part and will ensure others play theirs.” More on this story: Police charge man with attempted murder of Newry woman Newry police arrest 31 year old after ‘serious assault’ on woman
