14 March, 2017 - by Michelle O'Neill

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."
