Petrol bomb incident will not stop good community relations

20 June, 2013


Sinn Féin councillor Gerard O’Neill said he is thankful no one was injured in what appears to be a petrol bomb attack in the Suffolk area of West Belfast last night.

The West Belfast councillor said:

“Whoever was behind the attack and for whatever motive, it is a disgrace and will not stop the good work continuing between the communities of Suffolk and Lenadoon areas.

“While the circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear at this early stage any attack on people’s homes with petrol bombs can clearly lead to death or serious injury. Thankfully in this incident no one was hurt.

“If it is sectarian then the people of the Suffolk estate should know that those that carried it out do not represent their neighbours in Lenadoon. Sectarianism from whatever guise is a cancer in our society and needs treated as such.”
