Sinn Fein Councillor Colman Burns visited the sites in Mullaghduff, last week, where the latest diesel sludge was dumped and said it is a disgusting practice that feeds the ‘negative publicists’ who thrive on giving the border area a bad name. Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Burns explained, “Over the last number of weeks the South Armagh area has come under heavy attack from sensationalist and vile reporting from the gutter press that, quite rightly, was totally condemned by concerned locals as well as ourselves as elected representatives. “We asked that Council Officials make our thoughts known to the newspaper and reporters concerned. Unfortunately, the people who continue to dump this toxic waste along our roads and throughout our countryside are adding another injustice to our District.” Councillor Burns, “While they destroy our environment, they also feed the negative publicists who love to tar us all with the one brush. These people however have no regard for the South Armagh area or the people that live in it. They continue to treat the people of this district as second class citizens in pursuit of their greed.” Burns concluded by appealing to the perpetrators to realise the damage they are doing to the sistrict and to desist from this practice that continues to destroy the name of the area and its people.
