She also appealed for all those with influence to work together to put and end to such unprovoked racist attacks.

Ms O'Rawe said:

"This is a disgraceful attack. It appears to be part of a growing trend of unprovoked racist attacks in the Armagh area.

"It is vital that everyone with influence work together to stamp out racism." ENDS
