Ardoyne shooting: Those responsible are living in the past

13 October, 2009


Sinn Féin councillor for Ardoyne Margaret McClenaghan has stated that those behind the so called punishment shooting in Ardoyne on Monday night are living in the past and have no support.

Speaking today Cllr McClenaghan said:

“A young man was abducted and shot in Ardoyne last night. This is unacceptable.

“So called punishment shootings are a thing of the past and those who carry them out are living well in the past. Local communities do not want them and those responsible need to stop, listen to the community they say they represent and take heed. These shootings are not going to achieve anything.

“Those behind it are only attempting to make themselves relevant and need to desist from these action. The entire community has worked hard to provide alternatives and it is these that should be engaged with.“
