Sectarian attacks slammed by Sinn Féin councillor

24 February, 2014

Sinn Féin councillor Gerry McCabe has slammed those behind sectarian attacks at a North Belfast interface.

The councillor was speaking after nationalist and unionist homes and property were damaged last night at the interface on Alliance Avenue in Ardoyne.

Councillor McCabe said:

“From my understanding this began when nationalist homes were attacked early in the evening. Subsequently unionist homes and property were attacked later on

“Both attacks are unacceptable and can not be justified. Everything possible must be done to ensure that residents can live free from sectarianism of any nature.

“Those behind these attacks want to stoke up sectarian tensions, they must not succeed.  Sectarianism must be challenged every time it manifests itself, and those responsible must be apprehended and brought before the courts.”
