Arsonists Condemed

Fire Crews were tasked to a malicious fire on cliffs behind the Ferry Terminal in Ballycastle at the weekend. The fire was started at the bottom of the cliffs and due to the dry conditions raged up engulfing much of the cliff face shrubbery.

Local Independent Councillor Padraig Mc Shane condemed the vandalism saying,

Fire rages on cliff above the Goats Path

“Arsonists have caused significant damage to the natural wildlife habitat in the location. No thought was given to residents who live along the top of the cliffs at Kenmara Park and Lir Court. Thanks only to the quick response of the Fire Service, this incident could have been much worse.”
