Now loyalists threaten Kevin McDaid’s son

27 May, 2009

It has now transpired that Coleraine loyalists have threatened “some form of action” against one of murdered Kevin McDaid’s sons.


Police notified the young man late on Tuesday night as the threat was to take effect from midnight that night.


Coleraine Sinn Féin councillor Billy Leonard has described the threat as the “ultimate insult” to the McDaid family and added:


“These sectarian loyalists have murdered Kevin, badly beaten his wife Evelyn and now deliver the ultimate insult by threatening one of the sons.


All loyalist and unionist politicians and community leaders, including the UPRG, must now stand up and be counted by publicly and privately working to rid this community of such low level activity.


The world is sickened by Kevin’s murder yet cancerous Coleraine still spews out its loyalist sectarian bile and hatred.


This family have suffered enough: they must be able to grieve without further pressure. Those loyalists responsible must now publicly withdraw the threat and close down forever and the Police need to confirm which loyalist group the threat emanates from.” ENDS
