Speaking to Newry Times, Murphy said, “I have been contacted by applicants to the Community Hall Grants Scheme whose applications were refused and they are now concerned about the process. “One rejection letter to a GAA club flippantly dismissed the application stating their ‘organisation was not eligible to receive support’. “The list of recipients now in the public domain shows clearly these public funds have been significantly directed at one section of the community.
