Attack on Catholic Church in Rasharkin condemned

3 August, 2009

Rasharkin Sinn Féin Councillor Daithí McKay has condemned an attack on a Catholic Church in the area over the weekend. A number of windows were smashed at St Columba's Church outside the village.

Cllr McKay said

"To attack a church of any denomination is a sickening and reprehensible act and this attack must be condemned by all political parties.

"Anyone with information on this sectarian attack should bring it forward to ensure that those who carried it out are prosecuted. Local people are sick, sore and tired of these attacks. Those who carry out sectarian attacks on the Catholic or Protestant community here represent no-one." ENDS
