Slieve Gullion area Councillor Oonagh Magennis has said that the recent upsurge in what residents described as ‘anti-social behaviour’ in St Oliver Plunkett Park, Camlough, is a cause for concern.

The local Councillor made was commenting after speaking with local residents and visiting the area.



“There is a stretch of waste ground close to St Oliver Plunkett Park and it is attracting groups of young people who are causing considerable annoyance to nearby residents.

“I would appeal to those young people not to congregate in this area. Residents have made it clear that this behaviour needs to cease, it is not fun.

“Everyone has the right to live in peace and without fear. I have asked the Housing Executive to visit the area involved so that we can discuss deterrents.”



The Sinn Féin Councillor continued, “I am well aware of the urgent need for more resources for the Camlough Community and in particular our young people. I  am committed to working with all groups to help deliver community facilities.

She added, “Our Community, Sports, Youth and Cultural Groups have shown great leadership in working to develop people and enhance community cohesion and pride, working together we can deliver much more.”
