Seeley condemns attack on car of party’s Irish language officer

4 May, 2016 - by Catherine Seeley


Sinn Féin candidate Catherine Seeley has said an attack on cars belonging to the family of the party’s National Irish language officer Johnny McGibbon will not deter Sinn Féin in Upper Bann.

 Ms Seeley said,

 “Those who resort to skulking around in the middle of the night attacking the property of those who present a democratic coherent strategy of bringing about change are devoid of political thinking.

  “The attack on two cars belonging to the family of Johnny McGibbon should be condemned by all those who support the democratic process.

 “This attack on personal property belonging to a long-time Sinn Féin activist is a step up on the recent attacks on Sinn Féin billboards and posters.

 “Johnny McGibbon has worked tirelessly for his community including the promotion of the Irish language as Sinn Féin’s National officer.

 “I would appeal to anyone with information to bring it forward to the PSNI so that the culprits can be caught.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
