Gingers across Newry have been enjoying the summer sunshine by sitting indoors and watching telly.
The Newry, Mourne & Down District Council has advised that they continue to do this until at least 9pm when the sun will be lower in the sky.
Declan Quinn, who has been sat in his house all day, told Newry Spud:
“It’s not been so bad. Probably the worst bit of the curfew has been the fact that I haven’t been able to get down to Savages and get myself some milk. I hate drinking my tea without milk and that powder stuff tastes like shite. It’s hard being a ginger sometimes.”
A Council spokeswoman told Newry Spud:
“We take great pride of our gingers so we like to keep them locked up during sunny days in case they go red. We advise all gingers to carry on watching shite telly until at least 9pm when the sun’s rays won’t be as strong. If you’d like to call our hotline, you can’t because we don’t have one.”
