Sinn Féin Fews Councillor Roisin Mulgrew has hit out at those responsible for starting a fire to a hedge adjacent to a pensioners bungalow in John F Kennedy Park.

Speaking to Newry Times about the incident Cllr Mulgrew said, “I totally condemn this arson attack on this elderly gentleman’s property.



“Thanks to the vigilance of neighbours who alerted the man and also called the Fire Service, the fire was put out before the fire spread to the bungalow.”

Cllr Mulgrew continued, “I would like to commend the Fire Service and local people who acted quickly to extinguish the fire and ensure that people’s cars were not damaged in this reckless act.



She added, “I would also appeal to local people to keep an eye on their neighbours and report any suspicious activity to the police.”
