SDLP Newry & Armagh MLA Justin McNulty says, “I find it incredible that Newry Courthouse is still fortified as though we were at the height of the Troubles.

“Not only are the high defences and boundary treatments a complete eyesore, but it also projects a bad image of our area.

“I have formally raised this with the Justice Minister on a number of occasions, for the same reason that I met with Council Senior Management last month – because Newry needs a plan for investment and urgent attention to improve the appearance of our City Centre.

“The Council have agreed that this should be a priority.

“So I’m disappointed that the Justice Minister has demonstrated no interest in contributing to the regeneration and enhancement of Newry City Centre by de-militarising and normalising the Courthouse site,” the local MLA adds.
