Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Councillor Darren McNally has confirmed that an indecent exposure incident took place in the Keady Play Park area and he has appealed for parents to be vigilant.

The local Sinn Féin Councillor stated
"On Monday an incident took place in the play-park area of Keady were a man indecently exposed himself to a number of children who were playing at the time.

After speaking to one of the parents we feel it’s important that people are made aware of the incident in the hope that it serves as a timely reminder to all us parents and the local community to always be vigilant even in public areas with our kids".

The elected representative concluded

"I would like to assure people that the PSNI are investigating the matter and that council has been made aware as owners of the facility. Stay safe"

Pool  Blog  21/2/2018

CWC bounced back from their 1st league defeat of the season when they thumped Dan's 6-2.
The big story of a couple of weeks ago was Orchard bar ending CWC's unbeaten run.
Charlie Broughton ended a run of 2 defeats in a row to pick up his 3rd league win of the season and thus inflicted a 2nd league defeat on current joint individual holder Kieran McMahon. It was a good win and a statement of intent from Orchard Bar. They weren't going to just roll over for the champions.
Lee Irvine hardly shocked the pool world when he inflicted another defeat on Declan McConville for 2-0.
Mervyn Kernaghan and Bernie Magee were two of the in form players of all 3 Divisions. This was a huge frame for both teams. It was Kernaghan that edged this battle between two excellent tactician's. It was now 3-0 Orchard bar and now they had a bit of breathing space.
Old reliable Harvey Lavelle stopped the rot when he beat an in form Nigel Malcomson to make it 3-1.
Seamus McGeoghegan is another legendary tactical player but PJ McDanial is a supreme potter when he gets into his groove and Orchard led 4-1 and a huge upset was now on the cards.
The 6th frame was never going to be anything other than Pat Brady's frame. Brady increased his 100% win rate to 13 from 13. It was a master stroke from Orchard bar as Tony McGovern can't buy a win lately and he was sacrificed to make it 4--2 Orchard.
The brilliant Paddy Tavey took the match into the final frame when he beat  Crawford for 4-3. Tavey was in sensational form when he smashed in his 2nd break finish of the season. No doubt Tavey will correct us if that stat is incorrect.
Stevie Teggart was assigned to protect CWC's unbeaten start to the season. Noel Brown is enjoying a very good season but he was certainly 2nd favourite against former individuals winner Teggart. It was Brown that came out on top and the dream of an invincible season was banished for another year.

CWC A bounced back with a convincing win over Dan's A. Dan's will be be glad to see the back of this season. It was Dan's 1st game since the tragic loss of their talisman Barney Preece.
Dan's enjoyed a good 1st half of the  match before CWC moved up through the gears. Dan's captain Jimmy McVerry took one for the team when he was outclassed by multiple individuals winner Kieran McMahon.
James O'Hagan is enjoying a stellar season and it was no surprise when he levelled the match against Declan McConville.
Last season you wouldn't have given Niall Connolly a prayer of beating Bernie Magee but Connolly is one of the most improved players in the Premier Division and he gave Magee his 2nd defeat in succession while also putting Dan's 2-1 Up.
Harvey Lavelle gave Paddy Lavelle his customary defeat to square up the match 2-2.
CWC A captain Pat Brady switched himself from his usual 6th spot down to 5th and it was a masterstroke. Dan's had Ryan O'Hare lined up to take the hit from the unbeaten Brady but because of the switch it was 2016 individuals winner Seamus McVerry taking on the current joint holder Brady. It was a high quality match but Brady kept his 100% win record to put CWC 3-2 Up.
Paddy Clarke blitzed Ryan O'Hare to ensure CWC would not taste defeat for the 2nd league game in a row and they now led 4-2.
Paddy Tavey had no problems wrapping up the points against Niall O'Hagan and Seamus McGeoghegan applied the gloss and a tidy 6-2 win against Tony McElroy.

Orchard Bar were brought back down to earth with a bump after their heroics of beating league leaders CWC. Relegation threatened Ballyholland were not thought to be a challenge but the minnows prevailed.
David Cromie took the opener in Ballyholland beating Gerard McAvoy.
Colm Shields levelled against Lee Irvine.
It was Orchard that kept with form taking a 2-1 lead when Nigel Malcomson beat former Captain Jim McMahon.
Robbie White is in superb form and he was never going to be troubled by the out of sorts Tony McGovern for 2-2.
Giby Vettiankal shocked the talented potter PJ McDanial and Ballyholland had the lead for the 1st time. 3-2.
The upset was on the cards when Brendan Keenan beat one of the most in form players in all 3 Divisions. Mervyn Kernaghan was a hero last week but this week Keenan edged a close frame and was 4-2 Ballyholland.
Noel Brown made sure Ballyholland would wait for their rare win when he got the better of Kevin McGovern and it was 4-3.
The hosts would not be denied only their 2nd league win of the season.
Niall McQuillan and Brendy Devlin are both exciting potters but it was young McQuillan who was to be the hero of the night when he earned his side 2 very valuable points and maybe the start of a push for safety.

Bears may be virtually relegated but they beat a Whitecross side that are in disarray at his moment in time. It was Bears' 1st brace of points but it's too little too late for them. Still they will savour the moment as only they can. They are are good bunch of lads up there on the hill so hang in there chaps.

Trainor's Bar beat Hustlers to move within a point of 2nd placed. They are in good form since Christmas and could well be favourites for that all important 2nd spot in the league.

The Pairs results from last night (Tuesday) are all on the Pool Facebook page and on Destination Newry.

Remember get your names in for the Barney Preece memorial pool Tournament being in April 7th All proceeds go to Barney's family.
