SDLP Councillor Kate Loughran has called for the weed problem in John F Kennedy Park and the wider Bessbrook area to be addressed after she received calls from residents.

Speaking to Newry Times, Loughran said, “Following calls from residents, I have contacted DFI Roads to have this issue addressed.



“While green areas in John F Kennedy Park have been cut, kerbs, footpaths and fences have become unsightly due to overgrown weeds.

“Earlier this year, we were promised at a Special Council meeting that a full weed spraying service would be provided however, it appears DFI Roads are not living up to that commitment.



“There are similar issues across the Cloughreagh and Bessbrook area and I have asked for these to be addressed as soon as possible.

She added, “People already pay good money for this basic service and it must be delivered.

“I will ensure pressure is kept on DFI Roads until this growing problem is dealt with.”
