"Myself and my colleagues will continue to liaise with local Roads Service Officers and staff to try and ensure that our roads remain safe for road users. We do understand that in such conditions there is no certainty that roads remain frost and ice free but it is imperative that salting operations are focused, effective and as widespread as possible. We also remind all road users to take extra care and be aware of potential hazards this cold weather brings"
Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Larkin has condemned extensive dumping which has occurred on the slopes of Slieve Gullion mountain after car parts and scores of tyres had been dumped along several hundred metres of the forest drive.
That needs to be a priority. Sinn Féin will continue to engage with departmental officials as they prepare proposals for the anti-poverty strategy.”
"There are very serious safety issues around St Patrick's Primary school particularly when children finish school. Lack of traffic control and available car parking space cause major chaos and safety concerns. Roads Service have been asked to examine the issues involved and work with the School, PSNI and all other appropriate statutory agencies to address them. Meanwhile we remind motorists and pedestrians to drive carefully within the school area”
“Sinn Féin supports the expansion of renewable energy production that will allow us to cut our over reliance on fossil fuels and move towards a more-sustainable, low carbon society. However, this cannot be at the expense of important heritage sites which have been protected for thousands of years.”.
"This area is a "hot spot" for illegal dumping and our Environmental Department need to rigorously tackle the issue. Local people want it stopped and those who are engaged in these illegal acts to face prosecution. There is a need for appropriate overt and covert observation measures at "hot spot" dumping areas such as Watsons Road and Brogie's Road. I will be meeting Council Officers on site to hear their views on how they intend to support those of us who want to tackle this scourge.
“If you need free crime prevention advice, please call the 101 number and ask to speak to your local Crime Prevention Officer.”
The DUP committed to supporting all finance and Brexit legislation as part of that arrangement so now they will find themselves supporting further cuts to our block grant and further pressure piled on our public services.”
Eimear Rooney added that, “where members of the public come across a dead or injured bird of prey and there is no obvious innocent explanation for its injuries, such as contact with power lines or windows, and a crime is suspected then they should call the PSNI on Tel: 101. If the bird(s) are found close to a suspicious bait, keep people, pets and livestock away until the police arrive. This report only covers the carcasses that are recovered and it is likely the ‘tip of the iceberg’, as these incidents tend to occur in remote locations. Therefore, keep your eyes open in the countryside and remember timely reporting is important”.
