Castlederg Cllr hits out at anti-social behaviour at two local parks

A Castlederg councillor has hit out at anti-social behaviour at two parks in the area.

Cllr Ruairí McHugh says it's soul destroying to see the leisure amenities of Mitchell Park and Derg Castle Park being damaged after what appears to be another underage drinking session.
