Ligoniel Hoax Attack A Disgrace

6 August, 2004


Sinn Féin councillor Belfast Eoin O'Broin has described a hoax pipe bomb attack at Ligoniel Primary school this morning as a disgrace.

Cllr O'Broin said:

'Ligoniel Primary School is an integral part of community life for people in Ligoniel, Ballysillan and further afield. It provides a high quality and valuable service to the nationalist and unionist communities.

'This mornings hoax attack is a disgrace and those involved must stop. Their actions serve no purpose other than to undermine community relations in this already tense interface area.

'The teachers, pupils and parents from Ligoniel Primary deserve the support and respect of all sections of the community.

'I will be contactung the school principle in the coming days to assure her that such attacks do not have any support within the broad nationalist community and to see what assistance I can give in ensuring the future safety of the school.' ENDS
