Violent groups will not prevent Irish people from moving forward - Sinn Féin MLA

15 March, 2013 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan said that those behind the failed mortar attack in West Belfast today are deluding themselves if they think they are going to damage the Peace Process and prevent the Irish people from moving forward.

The West Belfast MLA said:

"The groups behind these failed attacks need to come out and explain why they are contuing to attack the Peace Process and attempting to prevent change.

"The North has changed and is contuing to change and these micro groups will not prevent the Irish people from moving forward. 

"They are causing disruption for people within the community and grabbing the headlines for a few hours and that is the net result of their actions. They are not going to deflect us and are deluding themselves if they think they will. 

"They appear visionless with their only strategy being to try and drag the North back into conflict. They will not succeed."
