Sinn Féin Councillor JJ Magee has said the community in north Belfast is shocked and disgusted by a break-in and significant act of vandalism at the Duncairn Cultural Centre on the Antrim Road.

JJ Magee said: 

“The local community has woken up to this shocking news of a break-in and significant act of vandalism at the Duncairn Cultural Centre on the Antrim Road.

“Having just attended the scene I’ve spoken to Rev Bill Shaw this morning and offered our support and that of the local community to him and everyone at the centre after this disgraceful attack.

“The Duncairn Cultural Centre is a prized asset for all the people of North Belfast and held the successful RTE Other Voices event over the weekend.

“The PSNI is in attendance and the venue is being treated as a crime scene at present so the full extent of the damage isn’t known.

“Those responsible for this act must be held to account for their actions and I would appeal to anyone with any information to bring it to the police.”
