Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle has said recent attempts by dissident Republicans to carry out attacks in the Strabane area have only caused hardship and disruption to the local community.
Ms. Boyle said:
“Apart from being reckless and putting local residents, including children, in danger these attempts have done nothing to bring Irish freedom closer.
“These people need to take stock from the reaction of the vast majority of the residents of Strabane and stop this futile campaign immediately.
“Apart from disruption, hardship and filling the jails they have achieved absolutely nothing apart from sullying the good name of republicanism.”
