Cllr Hargey slams damage to cars in Stewart Street.
Sinn Féin Councillor for the Market area Deirdre Hargey has slammed those responsible for damaging several cars on Stewart Street.
Councillor Hargey said:
“The damage to cars in Stewart Street is unacceptable and I condemn those responsible in the strongest possible way.
"Both commuters and residents have been affected. Cars have been smashed with stones and several have been set alight. It is nothing short of mindless vandalism.
"Over the weekend there were a series of incidents of vandalism in the Market area. This has seen the local Sure Start facility damaged resulting in the main gate into the facility being destroyed.
"There is no defending this behaviour at all and it needs to stop now.
"I'm asking all parents to take responsibility for their children and know where they are at all times.
"The community does not want this type of behaviour and it's not representative of the people of this area.
“The community, both young and old, have been involved in a positive community festival over the last few days and those involved in this negative behaviour damage the good reputation of this community.”
