Fears As Prearranged ‘Fight’ Gathering Results In Serious Anti Social Behaviour

Newry City Councillor Charlie Casey condemning those involved in serious anti social behaviour in the Clanryre Avenue area of Newry has appealed to those involved to think about the impact of their actions.

The Sinn Féin Councillor said that he was aware that the large gathering of young people had been prearranged to facilitate a ‘fight’ between two youths.

He stated, 

“This serious anti-social behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the community here  who have worked hard to make this area a safe and pleasant place to live.
I am aware that many of those who gathered had travelled from different areas to spectate at a prearranged fight between two youths.
What we witnessed was a display of serious criminal and anti social activities, not high jinks.
Anyone involved in this anti-social behaviour really needs to think about the impact of their actions on the local community particularly those elderly residents whose vulnerability  has been compounded by the present pandemic situation.
People have a right to live in peace and to feel safe in their communities.”
