The socialist Republican Party éirígí has slammed the actions of those responsible for an arson attack in the Derrybeg Estate in Newry on Saturday [March 21]. fire6On the evening in question a garage was set alight in the Fifth Avenue area causing extensive damage to the garage and the contents inside. Living just a few yards from the scene éirígí’s Newry spokesperson Stephen Murney condemned those responsible “This was a reckless and dangerous incident which destroyed a residents property and belongings. “This could have proven to be more serious given the close proximity of the fire to nearby houses. “It took two fire appliances and numerous firemen to bring this blaze under control and at one stage part of the street was sealed off. The fire service had to remain at the scene for a number of hours afterwards to ensure that no further danger was posed to local residents.” Murney continued, “This is a street where lots of children play; those responsible for this need to realise that their actions were both reckless and dangerous. He added, “I’ve spoken to residents in the street and they are quite rightly angered by this incident. The Derrybeg Estate is generally quiet when it comes to anti-social activity and this type of incident is neither welcome or wanted.”
