Bessbrook theft condemned

Sinn Fein Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has condemned the theft of a safety gate in Bessbrook Pond field.

mulgrew10“This is a reckless act carried out by those who have no regard for the safety of children and young people and indeed no respect for the entire Bessbrook community,” she told Newry Times.

“I wish to express my thanks to our council workers who have worked so quickly in a bid to temporarily secure the area. These sorts of crime may seem victimless however the cost of the replacing of the gates will be met by the ratepayer.

Mulgrew added, “I have no doubt that all those living in Bessbrook would rather see their rates spent on improving facilities within the area. I urge anyone with information on the theft of the gates or indeed anyone offering the gates for sale to contact myself or the police.”
