 The Chairperson of Derrybeg Community Association has slammed those responsible for vandalisation of the local Playpark that has taken place in recent weeks. Stephen Murney said "In the past few weeks a number of incidents of vandalism has occurred in the playpark in Derrybeg from glass being placed on slides to rubber safety mats being destroyed on at least two occasions.

 "The safety mats are there for a very simple reason, to help prevent injury. Those responsible for this wanton destruction should desist from this type of anti-community activity immediately." 

Stephen Murney surveys the damage at the children's playpark in Derrybeg.

 Murney continued "Times are hard enough and the last thing this community needs is for a play area for children be left in such a state that it's unusable. With many community centres and facilities closed due to the pandemic many children avail of local play parks.

 "Until this is repaired it is unsafe and unusable which is a disappointment for the children who use the park.

 "Those responsible for the damage caused have no regard for their own community.

 "This area is a proud community with our park and green space being very popular, with people from other areas of Newry even availing of the facilities." 

The community leader finished by saying "We are confident that the park will be repaired in the coming days and we hope this type of unwanted behaviour is not repeated."
