McGuinness responds to DUP statement on Ardoyne shooting

14 February, 2013

Responding to a statement from the DUP leader Peter Robinson concerning a shooting in Ardoyne, Martin McGuinness said:

“The violence related to extreme loyalist protests in recent weeks represented a serious challenge to the political process. We in Sinn Féin kept our nerve.

“The assertion that this shooting in North Belfast, which I unreservedly condemn, and the facts of which are at this stage under PSNI investigation and are unclear, should threaten the political process, is frankly ridiculous.

“The DUP should keep their nerve.”
