This comes after a number of residents approached the socialist Republican Party to report that they had found themselves targeted by the thieves.

éirígí’s Newry representative and local community activist Stephen Murney condemned those responsible. “A common theme with these thefts is that the perpetrators seem to be specifically stealing petrol lawnmowers and strimmers.

“This type of equipment can be quite expensive. Indeed one of the victims who contacted our party is a local landscaper and gardener who now finds himself unable to work due to the theft of of his equipment.”

Stephen continued, “In the past few weeks our party activists have taken to the streets of Derrybeg and Carnagat, along with scores of other residents, to support these communities in standing up against anti-social and anti-community activity.

“These thefts are also part of that scourge of unwanted behaviour. We would take this opportunity to urge residents to remain vigilant and to ensure their belongings and valuables are properly secured and safe.

Murney added, “If anyone has any information as to the whereabouts of the stolen items they can contact myself or any party activist.”
