SDLP Councillor Receives Bullet

5 August, 2004

South Down Sinn Féin Assembly member Caitriona Ruane has hit out at those responsible for sending a bullet in the post to local SDLP Councillor Eamon O'Neill.

Ms Ruane said:

" Whatever the motivation for sending SDLP Councillor Eamon O'Neill a bullet in the post this morning it was wrong and should not have happened.

" This is not the first such incident like this in recent times. Indeed in the past few weeks bombs have been left outside the homes of both Sinn Féin and SDLP representatives in Derry.

" I would call on whichever individual or group behind this mornings incident and indeed other similar recent incidents to stop this intimidation immediately." ENDS
