Coronavirus Northern Ireland: Finance Minister praises efforts of Newry and Warrenpoint schools

Finance Minister Conor Murphy this week visited schools in Newry and Warrenpoint which have been producing face shields for key workers.

Minister Murphy visited St Mark’s High School in Warrenpoint which has partnered with St Mary’s High School in Newry to produce face shields.



Murphy then visited Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar School and Our Lady’s Grammar School in Newry, where he met those involved in the project.

Following the visits, Conor Murphy told Newry Times, “While COVID-19 has brought many challenges it has also brought out the very best in our communities.



“I welcomed the invitation to visit these local schools.

“They have shown immense creativity, innovation and huge generosity of spirit in using their facilities to help produce face shields for frontline workers.



“It is great to hear that local companies have supported the schools with supplies to assist with production.

“Their collaborative efforts are hugely impressive.

He added, “They should be very proud of the key role they are playing in the fight against COVID-19.”
