Seeley condemns attack on Orange Hall

26 June, 2016 - by Catherine Seeley


Upper Bann Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Seeley has condemned the sectarian arson attack carried out on Muckery Orange Hall in Derrytrasna.

Ms Seeley said:

"This attack represents not only an attack on the Orange Hall but an attack on the entire community in Derrytrasna. The people who carried out this reprehensible act have nothing to offer the community and do not represent the people of this area in any way.

"I have been in contact with the Lodge Secretary tonight to convey my own and my party's disgust at this incident. I wish to offer our support in whatever way possible. 

"I also conveyed an offer made by Ógra Shinn Féin Upper Bann who wish to help with the clean up and repairs of the hall if possible. Incidents like this should be confronted for what they are - naked sectarianism.

"Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area should contact the PSNI"
