Anger after stone throwing attack on bus on Camlough Road

Local republican party Saoradh An Lùir has called on what they described as “the small minority of youths who insist on stoning vehicles” on the Camlough Road to stop before someone is seriously injured. 

The latest incident happened on Monday night, 26 February, when a bus driver almost crashed after the window of the bus was smashed whilst he was driving home after a days work.



Slamming those responsible, local Saoradh activist Anthony Coyle said told Newry Times, “We hope that the driver is ok and not too badly shaken.

“Those carrying out these attacks on passing motorists must stop these acts before someone is seriously injured or even killed.

“It was only last month that our activists took to the Camlough Road with the local community to call for traffic calming measures.



“If it takes us to take to the streets to stop this anti social behaviour with our community then we will not be found wanting,” Anthony added.
