O'Neill condemns Carrickfergus murder
Sinn Féin MLA Michelle O'Neill has condemned the murder of George Gilmore who was shot by loyalists in Carrickfergus yesterday.
Michelle O'Neill said:
"This murder of George Gilmore Carrickfergus was wrong and I absolutely condemn it.
"There can be no place in our society for paramilitarism, criminality and those who would bring guns onto our streets.
"The shooting happened on a day when we as MLAs signed into the Assembly and in doing so, pledged to work to end paramilitarism.
"There is a duty on everyone in public life to work to end paramilitarism. That is the job of political leadership and Sinn Féin is committed to that task and I urge others to do the same.
"I would call on anyone with information on this murder to bring it forward to the PSNI."
