5 September, 2016 - by Megan Fearon


Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon said that the attack on five Pride committee members was a bitter end to what was a fantastic day.

The Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“The homophobic attack on Saturday was shocking and I condemn it outright.

“Those who attended Pride had a fantastic day at the march and at the Pride Ball so it is shocking to hear that five committee members suffered a horrific attack.

“This attack sadly shows that prejudice still exists in some parts of society.

“Sinn Féin are committed to ending prejudice and bringing equality to all citizens across the island.

“I would encourage anyone who has information regarding the attack to contact the police.”
