Anamar school Cullyhanna has been destroyed in an arson attack last night. The school was closed in 2017 but locals were planning to re-open it as a community space.

The fire has been branded as an attack on community by Slieve Gullion Councillor, Terry Hearty.

Cllr Hearty commented "In recent months there has been a community led campaign to retain Anamar School building for community use for the betterment of local people.We wanted to use the school to provide a space to allow the community to tackle issues such as rural and elderly isolation, mental health concerns and provide amenities for local children and parents.Those plans have been ruined by this criminal act. The anger in the community is palpable. Those responsible should be ashamed and must be held accountable. Anamar School has been part of this community for years, this arson attack is an attack on all of us"
