Ulster Unionist Councillor David Taylor has condemned the latest incident of desecration of poppy wreaths and crosses placed at Narrow Water in memory of the 18 soldiers murdered by the IRA at the location nearly 40 years ago.
Councillor Taylor said:
“Yet again an incident has occurred which has resulted in the desecration of poppy wreaths and crosses placed at Narrow Water near Warrenpoint.
“This attack is another despicable act just like the many others which have occurred at the site of the memorial dedicated to the 18 soldiers murdered by the IRA on 27 August 1979.
“I say to those who perpetrate these sickening acts, enough is enough! The families of the 18 murdered soldiers already endure enough heartache through losing their loved ones in such tragic circumstances without having their pain further compounded when incidents of this nature occur.
“I appeal for all political representatives and community leaders to do everything in their power to ensure that these attacks stop once and for all.”
