Fearon says attack on Kingsmill monument ‘despicable’

30 July, 2018 - by Megan Fearon

Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has condemned those responsible for an act of vandalism at the monument to the victims at Kingsmill.


The Newry and Armagh MLA said, 


“The Kingsmill monument was vandalised overnight and a national flag erected on it.


“This was a despicable act designed to hurt the families of the victims.


“And those who placed a national flag on the Kingsmill monument clearly have no respect for the meaning of that flag which is about peace and harmony between the main traditions on this island. 


“There is absolutely no place in our society for desecrations of monuments which commemorate those who died during the conflict.


“Monuments and memorials are important places in communities and should be respected.


“I would encourage anyone with any information about who was responsible for this disgraceful act to contact the PSNI.”
