9 October, 2015 - by Barry McElduff


Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has slammed those responsible for a number of security alerts, which have caused significant disruptions.

Speaking from Omagh where the town centre has been affected he said:

“Those behind the alerts in Omagh and Belfast have caused significant disruption.

"Certainly from my perspective as an Omagh based MLA, I have witnessed the disruption to trade and local people’s movement including large number of school pupils. This time on a Friday is typically one of the busiest times of the week for trade and footfall.

“These security alerts is unacceptable. These actions will achieve nothing but cause great inconvenience to the local communities.

“Those behind this campaign need to come forward and supply a spokesperson to explain these actions. To date they have failed to do so as they are wrapped up in their own destructive agenda.

“These actions serve no republican agenda, of that I am certain.

“It is high time they stop these activities and catch up with the rest of society.”
