MP condemns Orange Hall attack

12 August, 2010

Sinn Féin MP for Mid-Ulster Martin McGuinness has branded those responsible for an overnight arson attack on an Orange Hall in Pomeroy as ‘motivated solely by sectarian bigotry’

Mr McGuinness said:

“The overnight arson attack on the Orange Hall in Pomeroy is unacceptable, it is wrong and it needs to be condemned. It is clearly aimed at raising tensions before this weekends Apprentice Boys parades.

“Those who carried it out are motivated solely by sectarian bigotry. They are no different to those who carry out attacks on GAA halls, churches and other cultural and community facilities. They do not reflect the community in Pomeroy or the wider area.” ENDS
