SDLP Assembly Member for Newry and Armagh Dominic Bradley MLA has condemned the shooting of a man in Cullyhanna on Tuesday night.
Mr Bradley said: “I want to condemn this attack outright, no-one can justify these types of attacks whatever their misguided motives.
“These kind of so called ‘punishment styled’ attacks were wrong in the past and are wrong today.
‘The community of Cullyhanna and South Armagh is abhorred by this attack; we had all thought these kinds of attacks were confined to history.
“I would appeal for those responsible to stop, to stop living in some warped version of the past and would appeal to the local community or anybody who knows anything about this attack to come forward to the authorities to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
