This vandalism [of poppy wreaths at Narrow Water outside Warrenpoint] is achieving nothing except causing hurt and suffering to the loved ones of the deceased.
After the last attack, I said it was a despicable act and I reiterate that.
I am appealing directly to those behind these now continuous destruction to stop. Your actions have no support in the wider community.
I would urge anyone with information on this attack – or the previous ones – to contact police about them immediately.
