Sinn Féin Councillor for Armagh City Roy McCartney has slammed the loyalists behind an attack on the Cuchulainn bar in Armagh city.
Speaking following the incident Cllr McCartney said:
“Tonight in Armagh city loyalists gathered for a protest which turned into an impromptu march with no police presence.
that march masked protestors attacked the Cuchulainn bar in the city
smashing windows and throwing lit fireworks into the bar. These very
easily could have set fire to the bar or injured those inside.
“During all of this there was no police presence whatsoever and the PSNI must answer to the community why this was the case.
protests, intimidation and violence needs to end and Unionist
politicians need to be to the fore, using whatever influence they have,
in ensuring this happens.”
