Witnesses sought after ‘deplorable’ South Armagh incident

Police are appealing for information following two incidents of criminal damage in the Forkhill area on Wednesday 29 October.

At around 9.45am it was reported that graffiti had been painted on the wall of a vacant public house in the Carricksticken Road area and also on a house in the Oldbridge Road area.

Appealing for information Inspector Lorraine Dobson asked anyone with any information about the incident to contact Police in Newtownhamilton on the non-emergency number 101. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Newry & Armagh MP Conor Murphy condemned the grafitti incident as “deplorable”.

Commenting on the incident the Sinn Féin representative said, “There is no justification for this disappointing and deplorable act and I share the anger of the local Forkhill community at the news of its occurrence.

“Attempts to intimidate through this type of action are cowardly and unacceptable and enjoy no support in the local community. Those involved should stop this activity now.”
