Flanagan condemns damage to Quinn Group canteen‏

22 December, 2011 - by Phil Flanagan

Sinn Féin MLA for Fermanagh & South Tyrone Phil Flanagan has condemned those behind last night's act of destruction at the staff canteen of the Quinn Group in Teemore when a lorry was driven into the property causing massive damage.

Mr Flanagan said:

"I would condemn the actions of those behind this destruction; these people have no regard for the current employees of the Quinn Group and any attempt to portray this as an action on their behalf will simply not wash.

"This type of activity, along with the previous attacks, have no support in the local community; the people in this area want to see the existing jobs within the Quinn Group retained and this ongoing campaign of destruction will not help that in any way.

"Not only was a lorry destroyed, but a facility used by members of staff from all levels of the Quinn Group was targeted; those responsible really need to take a good long look at the consequences of their actions and they must stop such activity immediately."
