Councillor Duffy Condemns Maghery Road Arson Attacks

Published: 5 April, 2018


Speaking following a number of arson attacks along the Maghery Road last week Sinn Féin Councillor Paul Duffy said:

"I want to wholeheartedly condemn the recent arson attacks along the Maghery road. These are unacceptable, inexcusable and serve absolutely no purpose.

"On Tuesday last week a number of derelict buildings were set alight causing extensive damage. This will severely hamper any renovation plans. A digger was also set alight on Friday night and damaged beyond repair.

"Although these arson attacks are not thought to be related they come on the back of a boat being burnt in the summer in Maghery country park.

"Such attacks impact the entire community.

"Until those responsible are brought to justice I would ask people to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police."
