Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín said tonight that people in Ardoyne are horrified and disgusted at the shooting of a young man in the area while a community festival was taking place.
Carál Ní Chuilín said:
“This young man was shot only yards from the entrance to the venue of the Ardoyne Fleadh where thousands of people have gathered to enjoy the last night of the festivities.
“This was a cowardly and despicable attack and local people are also horrified that it was carried out in full view of children who were going to the festival.
“The thugs who carried out this attack represent no one.
“They should immediately end their campaign of violence and threats against the people of Ardoyne.
“Anyone who has any information on this attack should bring it to the police."
