Published: 25 May, 2018

Sinn Féin Councillor Liam Mackle has expressed outrage at damage caused to headstones in the historic Shankill Graveyard.

He said:

"This is an absolutely disgraceful and deliberate attack on Lurgans oldest graveyard.

"Those involved acted deliberately and without thought.

"This graveyard is part of the heritage of the town and is important to the whole town.

"Anyone with information on those responsible should bring it to the PSNI immediately.

"People who will stoop to damaging graves are beyond contempt.

"I will be contacting council to request increased security including security cameras."
