Newry Halloween Festivals Commended

Sinn Féin’s local government candidate Liz Kimmins has praised Newry community groups who have delivered a series of successful Halloween projects across the town.

Speaking to Newry Times, Kimmins said, “Halloween in Newry this year was a safe, enjoyable, family festival. In particular community associations in Threeways, Carnagat and Derrybeg held excellent events over the Halloween period.

“Both I and my Sinn Féin colleagues, councillors Valerie Harte and Charlie Casey are delighted with the positive work being done by all of these community groups. Festivals like these don’t just happen by themselves but are down to the dedication and commitment of community volunteers who devote their time year after year to ensuring they are a success.”

Liz Kimmins also commended the statutory agencies which provide funding and support to these festivals saying, “Agencies such as the SELB, Community Restorative Justice (CRJ), the Fire Service and the PSNI have all made positive contributions to Halloween festivities across Newry and Mourne.

“As ever Newry and Mourne District Council and the Policing and Community Safety Partnerships were instrumental in making the necessary arrangements to enable the festivals to take place.

Kimmins added, “These Halloween Festivals demonstrate what can be achieved when strong communities work in partnership with local agencies. I hope that everyone across the district had a happy and safe Halloween.”
