The MP was making his comments after it was revealed that ReGen Waste Management based at Carnbane Industrial estate in Newry had donated £60,000 of PPE to protect Southern Area Trust staff.



Speaking to Newry Times, the local MP said, “This is a very generous gesture by ReGen.

“The company’s contribution will have a direct impact on the number of lives protected and saved within our community.”

Commenting on the ongoing efforts by local businesses, community, voluntary and sports groups and individuals in supporting others during this crisis, the Sinn Féin representative said, “It is great to see so much community activism across Newry and Armagh to help those in need during this pandemic.



“Hundreds of community activists have been working across the constituency on a daily basis.

“These businesses, community, sporting and voluntary groups and individuals are prioritising the health and well-being of vulnerable over their own and that is commendable.

“We owe them all a great debt of gratitude.”



Mickey continued, “This week has again been challenging for families and frontline workers in the battle against COVID-19.

“I want to pay tribute to our magnificent healthcare workers for their tireless work in caring for the vulnerable.

“Tonight, I will once again join thousands to applaud our health staff who are working tirelessly to care for vulnerable citizens.

“But tonight, they need more than our applause.



“They need us to follow public health advice.

Brady added, “By staying at home, you will save lives and assist health workers.”
