Attack on Newry Orange Hall wrong

28 August, 2004


Sinn Féin Newry Armagh MLA Davy Hyland has said that the attack on an Orange Hall was wrong and added that it will only serve to undermine community relations.

Mr Hyland said:

"The attack on this Orange Hall in Newry is wrong. It will only serve to undermine community relations.

"Whether it is attacks on an Orange Hall, on Republican memorials or on Presbyterian graves these attacks contribute nothing to the work of those of us committed to brining about a just and lasting peace.

"Those carrying out these attacks, whether it is the work of mindless vandals or something more sinister, should understand that their actions will find no support in any community.
