Michelle O Neill pictured at the Edentubber Martyrs Monument with family members of those who died 60 yrs ago and Sinn Féin elected representatives from the Louth, Armagh and Newry areas. 
“It is clear that the Tory government’s priority at this time is to sustain its political pact with the DUP,” she commented.
“Theresa May and her party have acquiesced in their own self-interests to the DUP blocking the equality agenda and denying rights which are the norm in all other parts of our islands.
“Sinn Féin remains committed to the restoration of the institutions and the Executive.
“However, they only have value if they enjoy the confidence and support of the people they were established to serve.
“They only have meaning if they are delivering fairly for all our people based on the principles of equality and mutual respect on which they were founded.

“If the DUP or anyone else wish to exercise political power in Government in the North of Ireland now or in the future, then the cost is to embrace a rights-based society and equal partnership government, which works for everyone.”

Detectives in Newry are investigating an arson attack at a property in Loanda Crescent on the morning of Saturday 11th November.

Detective Sergeant Peter Stewart said: “Police received a report of a fire at the front door of a first floor flat at Loanda Crescent at around 8am on Saturday morning. Upon arrival of police and NIFRS personnel, the fire had been extinguished by a neighbour. Checks were then carried out to ensure no-one was inside the flat. At this time, it is believed that accelerant was poured on the door and then set alight. The door of the flat has been badly damaged as a result of the fire and smoke damage caused to the inside of the property.”
“I would ask anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the Loanda Crescent area at the time of this incident or anyone who has any information which could assist with our enquiries to contact detectives in Ardmore on 101 quoting reference number 354 11/11/17 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
