The Councillor said, “A sign situated at High Street corner on the Camlough Road has been vandalised in what many see as a sinister sectarian attack.



“Sinn Féin has a democratic and legitimate right to campaign, and to bring our message of equality, rights and Irish Unity.

“And despite actions like this Sinn Féin will not be deterred.”

The local Councillor appealed for calm. “Irresponsible and dangerous sabre rattling and reckless rhetoric from Unionist politicians have seen tensions rise right across the community.



“I would appeal for calm.

“And I call on those in positions of influence in political unionism to demonstrate more measured and responsible leadership,” he added.
