Businesses targeted in Garvagh

16 August, 2009


Sinn Féin councillor Billy Leonard has been notified of a number of Catholic owned businesses in Garvagh Co. Derry which have had windows broken in overnight attacks.

He said:

“People have contacted me and informed me that a café, a hotel and a diner, all owned by Catholics, had their windows broken in overnight attacks.

“They are disgusted and obviously see this as sectarian. I think that it reveals the most pathetic attitude and the difference between the attackers and those people who work hard and contribute to the community is there for all to see.

“Garvagh has had this negative sectarian image down through the years. Everyone must play their part to get rid of that outdated strain from the town.” ENDS
