Ratepayer to foot clean-up bill after sectarian graffiti sprayed all over Keady footpaths

Keady graffiti

Ratepayers will be footing the clean-up bill following a spate of vandalism in Keady over the weekend.

Sectarian graffiti was doused all over the footpaths and roads in the centre of the town, around the Glen Road area, at some stage in the last 48 hours.

Sinn Fein councillor Darren McNally says he he has contacted Council, after local residents raised their concerns, about removing the offending slogans.

However, that bill will once more ultimately come from the pockets of ratepayers.

“I have been assured the offending graffiti will be removed and work on the clean-up will be done very quickly,” councillor McNally assured.

He added: “I am working with Council to make sure areas like Keady are kept clean and welcoming.

“Acts like this only serve to bring the look of the area down; residents don’t want this type of activity in the town, and I’d call on those responsible to stop immediately and consider the wider community before engaging in anti-social activities like this.”
