26 July, 2013


Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has condemned on going paint bomb attacks in the Bishop Street area .His call comes after a number of paint bombs were thrown at the Apprentice Boys Hall and follows attacks on First Derry Presbyterian church and homes in the Long Tower Court area of Bishop Street.

Councillor Kelly said “In the past week we have seen attacks on First Derry Presbyterian church and the now the Apprentice Boys Hall. A number of paint bombs have  also been thrown from the Fountain Estate out onto Bishop Street hitting the fronts of a number of homes in Long Tower Court and others landing in the roadway.

It’s important that the message goes out to whoever was involved that its totally wrong. We cannot allow these sorts of senseless actions to occur in this day and age nor be used to heighten tensions in and around the greater Bishop Street/Fountain area, which is something no one wants”
