Racists 'not welcome' in North Antrim

22 March, 2010

North Antrim Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay has condemned the petrol bomb attack on a house on the Galgorm Road in Ballymena last night.

Mr McKay said:

“As the damage to the house shows this was an extremely serious attack and we are extremely lucky that no-one was killed or seriously injured.

“This appears to be a racially motivated attack and it is to be deplored. The Polish community are a valued part of the community in North Antrim and make a huge economic and social contribution to the community overall.

“The people who carried out this attack are those who are not welcome here. I would urge anyone with information pertaining to this incident to bring it forward and ensure that those who carried out the attack are brought to book.” ENDS
