A Candle-Light vigil is planned in Newry next week after news filtered through that Ken’s Chinese plans on closing down from 15th May and reopening on Sunday 5th June.
Organisers claim that weekends and hangovers will simply not be the same without the obligatory ‘Ken’s’.
The people of Newry are asked to light a candle and place it in their front windows from 5pm Next Sunday until the re-opening on 5th of June.
One Ken’s lover Rose Hughes who didn’t want to be named told Newry Spud:
“I am literally lost for words at this moment in time. I know it’s only a Chinese but it’s more than that for me, it’s a tradition, a religion if you will. I’m utterly devastated and I can only hope and pray Ken’s make a U-Turn and remain open.”
A Spokesman for Ken’s ironically named Ken told us:
“Are you for real? It’s a fast food business I run, go somewhere else you crying cunts.”
