Anger over dumping at new Corrinshego GAA pitch

Sinn Fein Newry councillor Liz Kimmins has condemned those who are using the grounds around Corrinshego’s new pitch as a dumping ground.

Corrinshego1“While I was at Corrinshego’s first match on Sunday I noticed there was a lot of dumping at what is locally known as the Spricks,” she said.

“This is all household items, wallpaper, furniture etc and is a serious concern, not only aesthetically, but as it was dumped at the stream.

“I would call on those spoiling this beautiful part of the countryside to cease this damaging and selfish activity.”

Gerry O’Reilly from Thomas Davis GAC also called on those responsible to stop. “It took a lot of hard work to get this new pitch and it’s really heartbreaking to see that already some people are abusing it.

“I can’t understand how people can have such a callous disregard for a community facility and the area in general,” Gerry added.

Sinn Fein MLA Mickey Brady, who was in Corrinshego to congratulate the team on their first match on the new pitch echoed those calls. “This is such a beautiful part of the constituency and it’s a real shame to see people mar it like this.

He added, “The GAA is a community organisation, there for everybody and this type of selfish activity is the absolute antithesis of that.”
