Anger at attack on Fermanagh GAA club

20 December, 2007


Sinn Féin Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew has condemned the attack on the St Mary's GAC club in Maguiresbridge, County Fermanagh.

The local MP said:

"The GAA plays a huge role in our local communities. It is a positive force that particularly is a focus for many families and children.

"This is a despicable attack. It is an attack on the entire community.

"We need to cut out the sectarian cancer in our society that provides the oxygen for sectarian attacks such as this and the attacks in recent days that we have seen on Orange Halls.

"Sectarian attacks damage us all as a society." ENDS
