Newry & Armagh’s MLA Conor Murphy has announced today that Newry Spud will be taking over his ‘Official Press Office’ after he advertised the position.

After a few good candidates had been seen the Camlough politician has opted for Newry Spud for its ‘unwavering truth’ and ‘journalistic integrity’.

Mr Murphy said:

“I had to go for the Newry Spud people to look after my press. When I look back at what they have already done for me it is quite phenomenal.

To date they have announced me as ‘Ireland’s happiest looking politician’ they have made it look like my new kitchen was modelled on my old comrade Muammar Gaddafi’s kitchen (golden taps and all) and they have convinced people that there was a stone statue of myself erected on Camlough Mountain. You can’t buy thon coverage.”
