Murphy condemns Newtonhamilton alert

13 April, 2010

Sinn Féin’s Conor Murphy MLA has criticised those responsible for a bomb alert in Newtonhamilton and asked their spokespeople to explain to the people how this will in any way advance republican objectives.

Speaking today Mr Murphy said;

“I would call on those who support these groups to come forward and explain to us how this act will in any way advance republican objectives.

The reality is that there now exists a peaceful way to achieve Irish unity, Republicans, along with the vast majority of the people of Ireland are committed to pursuing that objective peacefully.

This latest alert has done nothing to further republicanism, it has simply disrupted the community in Newtonhamilton.” CRÍOCH
