Unionists must do more on attacks on Rasharkin GAA club – McGuigan

9 June, 2017 - by Philip McGuigan


North Antrim Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has said more needs to be done to stamp out sectarian attacks on the property of St Mary's GAA in Rasharkin.

Speaking the latest attack Philip McGuigan said:

"This is the third such attack in a short space of time. 

“The people of Rasharkin are quite rightly very angry and annoyed this is happening on a regular basis and seemingly with complete impunity.

"The GAA club in Rasharkin is a shining example of what is good and positive in a community and the people responsible for these hate-filled sectarian attacks are the complete opposite.

"These attacks need to be condemned by publicly by Unionist politicians. 

“It is also clear that the PSNI need to do more to bring those responsible for such hate crimes before the courts. 

“The people responsible are anti-Catholic, anti-Irish and anti-community but should not be allowed to succeed in raising tensions as is their intention."
