Sinn Féin councillor Terry Hearty has expressed his concerns with the amount of pressure that the Crossmaglen Citizen Advice Bureau will endure if the Jobs and Benefits Office closes in April. Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Hearty explained; “I have been inundated with phone calls from concerned residents about the notification that the contract will not be renewed for the Jobs and Benefits Office in Crossmaglen after April. “I am concerned that the closure will cause a knock on affect for CAB in Crossmaglen, which only opens for three hours and as a result they will be put under even further pressure. Our own Sinn Féin Office in the area has been extremely busy dealing with people’s problems in relation to welfare and the cuts that they are facing. “My party colleague MLA Mickey Brady will be engaging in a meeting on Monday morning in the assembly, to put forward the case that the closure of this office will have a devastating effect on the residents from the area. Hearty added, “It is not practical for some people to travel the whole way to the Newry office and will leave an enormous pressure on both CAB and our local party’s office.”
