People of Forkhill have spoken out, fists clenched, after a visiting man’s car window was put through on Saturday night.
With literally nothing else to do, recent figures put over 80% of Forkhill’s population as being drunk at any given time, with children as young as 9 seen drinking tins of Harp.
The man who’s window was broken who is from county Down said that the regulars in The Welcome Inn could smell that he was from out of the village before he even spoke.
He told Newry Spud:
“They started chanting at me in a language I didn’t understand; every now and again one of them would stop and piss on another one. It was quite disturbing”.
Several respected Forkhill residents, including politicians, publicans and GAA committee members have defended the village, calling it peaceful, friendly and quiet. Anyone who disagrees has been challenged to “meet outside the Welcome Inn for a row.”
