Sinn Féin representative Áine Quinn has said that the recent find of discarded drug paraphernalia near a local school is a cause of great concern.
The Slieve Gullion representative said:
“The materials were found near a local Primary school. The fact that this was discarded so recklessly in an area so close to children, without concern for the Health or Safety of the local community is shocking.
“Such items are extremely dangerous, especially to younger children who may not be aware of what they have found.
“I would appeal to parents to tell any young person who comes across such discarded items, not to touch them.
