Newry Girl ‘Missing’ For 10 Minutes On Facebook Found Safe And Well


Panic spread in the Newry area yesterday as Marie-Clare Fitzpatrick, of Newry, failed to post anything to social media for over 15 minutes.

‘I was devastated’ said her friend, Colleen McCreesh of Newry. ‘I had no idea what she was doing or where she was. I didn’t even know if she’d done her Dunne’s shopping or not. It was terrifying’.

Ms Fitzpatrick said she had popped in to talk to a neighbour and time ran away with her.

‘I just forgot to post for a few minutes. But it’s all back to normal now. I’ve put the usual posing photos of myself up and reported my tea and biscuit consumption to all my Facebook friends.’
