camlough16After what was described by local Councillor Roisin Mulgrew as “a horrific spree of dastardly crime against people, their homes and the community in general” residents from the Camlough and Bessbrook area have come together to help in the battle against crime within their communities. The Sinn Féin Councillor explained, “We continue to see a very worrying trend of burglary and vehicle thefts in the locality. “A recent spree of house break-ins have motivated local residents from Camlough and Bessbrook to come together and discuss how we can in appropriate fashion deter those engaged in these despicable crimes against our communities.”

Anyone who wishes to help out should just come to the McCreesh Community House any night at 6pm.”
