Sinn Fein’s Charlie Casey has hit out at local 12th of July bonfire builders we can reveal.

The elder statesman of local politics is said to be both ‘furious’ and ‘hurt’ when news came through that the bonfire on the Belfast Road would not feature Councillor Casey’s election posters this year.

We spoke with one 12th of July bonfire builder from Shandon Park Willie Irvine who told Newry Spud:


“We’ve decided to go in a different direction this year. While we appreciate Councillor Casey’s help in previous years we thought we’d go for a more chic look this summer and will be burning Megan Fearon MLA’s posters instead. She resonates a little bit better with the younger bonfire builders. ”

Meanwhile it was reported Charlie Casey was spotted outside Shandon Park with a heap of his election posters trying to give them out to unsuspecting locals.
