SDLP MLA Dominic Bradley has commended the fantastic work by the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service after fire fighters bravely tackled gorse fires throughout the Newry and Mourne area over the past 48 hours. Speaking to Newry Times, Mr Bradley said, “Fire and Rescue Service personnel worked extremely hard in difficult circumstances over long hours to deal with an extensive gorse fire and the whole community should be grateful to them for their efforts. I would like to place on record my own thanks and the thanks of the whole community to the officers involved. It is not certain as yet how this fire was started, but I very strongly support the campaign by the Fire and Rescue Service launched today to raise awareness among the general public of the dangers presented by gorse fires.” Bradley added, “I would urge anyone availing themselves of the countryside, especially in hill and mountain areas, to exercise extreme care and caution. We do have a number of walking groups in this area who are led by trained personnel and part of their code of conduct is respect for the countryside. I believe that everyone involved in leisure activities in the countryside should adhere to the same code of conduct.” Related Articles: PSNI: ‘Gorse fires were started deliberately’ Fires break out around Camlough Mountain
