Sinn Féin Councillor Liz Kimmins has said that children as young as 12 are getting caught up in anti-social behaviour acts in the Meigh area.

The local Councillor appealed for these activities to cease and said, “I have been working with local residents in the Meigh area following reports of ongoing anti-social behaviour and targeted attacks by a small number of youths on people living in the community.



“These young people, some as young as 11 and 12 years old, have been reportedly been throwing eggs at houses and kicking doors, all which has been very intimidating for those affected.”

The Sinn Féin representative continued, “These attacks have been ongoing for a long period of time and this community has had enough.



“We are appealing to parents to be mindful of their children’s whereabouts and their activities, as this small minority are making the lives of local residents very difficult.”

The local Councillor added, “This cowardly behaviour needs to cease, it is not fun, it is verging on criminal.

“Everyone has the right to live in peace and without fear.”
