Shock at County Monaghan death

21 October, 2007

Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MP Conor Murphy MLA has condemned the brutal murder of a man from Cullyhanna in the County Monaghan village of Oram.

Mr Murphy said:

"The local community are shocked at this tragic death and I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the family.

"I also know that such an attack in a remote area like Oram has sent shockwaves through the local community there.

"There are wild and baseless allegations being made. However I do not believe that there is any republican involvement in this murder.

"Whatever circumstances are behind the attack there can be no justification for this type of violence.

"Anyone with information that can assist the family should come forward to the gardaí or PSNI immediately." ENDS
