Plans by UK Prime Minister, Theresa May to visit the border tomorrow but missing out on Newry has been described as "appalling" by Chairman of Newry, Mourne and Down Council, Cllr Mark Murnin.

The Councillor for Slievecroob DEA said “The decision by Theresa May not to visit Newry during a trip to meet border communities is appalling.

“As the current Chairman of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, I am acutely aware of the concerns of the business community who are desperately seeking reassurance that London is working in the best interests of those who will be hurt the most by Brexit.

Cllr Murnin points out that the A1 corridor that cuts through Newry to the South is one of the largest transport routes in the North and that Newry also has the greatest amount of trade across the border as well as the second largest port in the district.

The Chairman concluded “My colleagues and I are angry and extremely disheartened that Theresa May wouldn’t take the time to hear the very real concerns of the people of Newry on one of her very rare visits to the North, especially one that’s sole purpose is Brexit and the border.”
