Sinn Féin Newry Councillor Charlie Casey has said that the decision of Newry, Mourne & Down District Council to retain the name of Raymond McCreesh Park will be welcomed by the people of Ballybot.

Speaking to Newry Times, Cllr Casey said, “Sinn Féin and the overwhelming majority of people from the Ballybot area believe that the name of Raymond McCreesh Park should remain unchanged.



“Last night’s Council vote was a recognition of the esteem and respect in which Raymond McCreesh is held by the people of Ballybot.

“Currently Newry, Mourne and Down District Council are undertaking a Play Review Strategy for all recreational facilities in the district.



“During this, residents of the Ballybot area will be given the opportunity once again to decide the future of Raymond McCreesh Park through a public consultation.

He added, “Sinn Féin support the right of the residents of Ballybot to determine the future of their local facilities, and to name them in any way they see fit.”
