Vandals have targeted an historic graveyard in south Armagh.
There has been widespread anger, with Newry and Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins describing recent incidents as “appalling”.
She said: “Stonework around the church was damaged in the incident.
“Unfortunately, this is the most recent incident to happen on this historical site. There have been previous issues of anti-social behaviour in the cemetery.
“These are appalling acts of vandalism and have caused huge anger within the local community.”
Echoing his colleague’s sentiments local Councillor Mickey Larkin said: “The Forkhill community have close links with this historical site.
“Urnaí is the burial place of Peadar Ó Doirnín; his grave is marked with a commemorative stone and our local GAA Club is named after him.
“Those responsible for this attack must be unreservedly condemned.”
