Mac Lochlainn comments on Buncrana shooting

10 February, 2012 - by Pádraig Mac Lochlainn


The Sinn Féin TD for Donegal North East Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has expressed shock at the shooting of a young man outside Buncrana last night.

Deputy Mac Lochlainn said that those responsible represent nobody in either Donegal or Derry or urged anybody with information to come forward.

Deputy Mac Lochlainn said:

“The community in Buncrana is shocked and horrified that a man was shot in our town last night.

“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family at this extremely difficult time.

“Those responsible for this murder represent nobody in either Donegal or Derry.

“To murder a young father of two in his home is an unbelievably cruel act and I once again call on those responsible to stop, stand aside and accept the will of the people of Derry and Donegal who support the peace process and the new beginning to policing in the North of Ireland.”
