5 August, 2018 - by Michelle Gildernew


Sinn Féin MP Michelle Gildernew has urged people to exercise caution as emergency services tackle a fire that broke out at St Patrick’s Academy in Dungannon tonight.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MP said,

“Whether accidental or deliberate, fires are incredibly dangerous and destructive so I would urge everyone to exercise extreme caution.

“I would also like to appeal to everyone to report any suspicious activity as the deliberate lighting of fires is reckless and completely unacceptable.

She added,

“I would like to recognise the selfless efforts of the emergency services who are at the scene tackling the fire.”
