There was shock and sadness in Newry today as Sinn Féin’s Charlie Casey shaved his much loved moustache we can reveal.
Thousands have taken to social media to mourn the loss of the well-known moustache after Mr Casey was seen in the town without the lip fuzz.
Mr Casey was unavailable for comment today. It is yet not known what prompted the popular Shinner to shave his moustache.
Funeral details have yet to be announced, but many are calling on the moustache’s remains to be donated to the scientific community in Queen University, or to be put on display in the National Museum of Ireland.
