Welcome for South Armagh demilitarisation move

29 July, 2005

Commenting on the announcement that work to remove a spy post in South Armagh is to commence today Sinn Féin MP for Newry & Armagh Conor Murphy said:

"It is obviously welcome for those people living under this spy post that it is to be removed. People living in areas like South Armagh have lived with the negative effects of military occupation for too long. We are now well over ten years into this process.

"The start made today must be built upon in the days and weeks ahead, not just in South Armagh but across the six counties. The demilitarisation of communities is an important element in consolidating the progress already made and ensuring that we build a new future free from conflict and division." ENDS
