The incident happened in the Bessbrook area when the elderly lady interrupted thieves in her home in Cloughreagh Park.

Newry and Mourne Sinn Féin Councillor Pat McGinn told Newry Times that he shares the anger of the local community on what he described as an ‘appalling incident’. The Councillor, who has been in touch with family members, said that the elderly victim was severly traumatised.

“This is an appalling incident, which has left a respected elderly lady, her family and neighbors both traumatised and concerned,” McGinn stated.

“I share the anger and concern of the local Cloughreagh community and we hope and pray that the victim will make as full a recovery as possible.

He added, “Those who break and enter into homes and in particular those of those most vulnerable need to be apprehended and face the full rigours of the law.”
