Attack on St Patricks can in no way be justified or rationalised

Sinn Féin MLA for North Belfast, Carál Ní Chuilín has slammed those responsible for a petrol bomb attack on Saint Patrick's College Bearnageeha.

Speaking today Ms Ní Chuilín said:

“This attack cannot be justified or rationalised in any shape or form. It was an attack on the community, the pupils and the teachers at the school. We are indeed very lucky that the school was not burnt down.

“This is exam time and I hope that the damage causes will not inflict undue pressure or annoyance on either students or the school as they prepare for summer tests.

“Anyone with information on this arson attempt should contact the PSNI. We cannot let damage such as this against our schools go unchallenged in order to make sure that such attacks do not happen again with more serious consequences. “
