‘Barcroft anti-social behaviour is intimidating people’ – Kimmins

Sinn Fein councillor Liz Kimmins is calling on people to help put an end to anti-social behaviour in Newry.

Raymond McCreesh Park in Newry has seen street drinking problems

The Newry representative said street drinking in Barcroft and Raymond McCreesh Park were particular problems.

Speaking to Newry Times, Kimmins explained, “Residents have contacted me about groups of adult males gathering to drink in Raymond McCreesh Play Park, on the Glen steps leading to Dominic Street and on the Kiln Street steps.

“This is very intimidating for people living in the community and especially for older people. There are also health and safety risks as these people leave broken glass and other rubbish in the children’s play area and on the steps.

“I have reported this to PSNI and will continue to do so until it is dealt with. I would urge residents to do the same in order to demonstrate that the people of the area wont stand for this behaviour.

“If residents would prefer they can also contact the Sinn Fein office and I can deal with their complaint.

She added, “This is totally unacceptable behaviour. The community are proud of their area and want to ensure it is a safe place for everyone.”
