A concerned Shandon Park mother has spoken out after what she called a ‘distressing’ and ‘shocking’ find under her 18 year-old sons mattress; a Mickey Brady Sinn Féin election leaflet.
Liz Irwin a resident of Shandon Park for over 20 years was taken by ambulance to the nearby Daisy Hill Hospital after finding the Republican propaganda under her son Nigel’s mattress.
Speaking from her bed in Daisy Hill Mrs Irwin told Newry Spud:
“I was half expecting to find an old dirty magazine or a few crusty socks but what I found was much, much more sinister and distressing than that; a Mickey Brady election campaign leaflet. I felt quite sick at first then took quite unwell at which point medical attention was called for.”
Meanwhile Nigel spoke to Newry Spud saying:
“I don’t know what I was thinking of to be honest. I apologise to my poor wee mummy and to anyone who was offended by my terrible actions.”
