Sinn Féin condemns Lurgan racist attack

10 November, 2004

An attack upon three east European nationals in Lurgan last night has been condemned by Sinn Fein MLA John O'Dowd.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"This clearly racist attack upon these three men was totally wrong and I condemn it thoroughly. Those responsible for this attack are in no way representative of the local community. I intend to meet up with members of local community groups, clergy and others to discuss what steps can be taken locally to prevent any re-occurrence of this attach and to try seek to re-assure other members of the migrant worker community."
