18 January, 2011 - by Westminster


Sinn Féin MP for Fermanagh and South Tyrone Michelle Gildernew has branded those responsible for a series of attacks in Co Tyrone over the weekend on Strawletterdallon, Dergina and Mullnahunch Orange Halls as 'motivated solely by sectarian bigotry'.

Ms Gildernew said:

"The attacks over the weekend on these Orange Halls throughout Tyrone are unacceptable; it is wrong and it must be condemned.

"Those who carried them 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 Tyrone or the wider area."
