Controversy surrounds the new ‘Hollywood’ style sign erected on Camlough Mountain.

The sign that was erected overnight by Newry, Mourne & Down Council has been blasted by locals who call it an eyesore and a waste of money.

Local intellectual and historian Keith Fleming told Newry Spud:

“It is quite unbelievable that this sign was erected without proper consultation from locals. One cannot believe the stupidity of our so-called council by erecting this monstrosity. Look how long it took us to get the Brits off the mountain, now they put this stupid sign up. Breathtakingly idiotic.”

A council spokesman told us:

“We wanted to showcase Camlough Mountain, it will in our opinion bring thousands of visitors as it does in Hollywood and we all know Camlough is the Los Angeles of Newry.”
