8 October, 2018 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has confirmed that a shot was fired at his constituency office in West Belfast during a paramilitary attack on Sunday night.

A man in his 30s was shot in the leg during the attack on the Norglen Road and the West Belfast MLA condemned those responsible.

“The people who carried out this attack have left a man with potentially life changing injuries,” he said.

“They then recklessly fired a shot across the road and through the window of my constituency office, endangering anyone who may have been in the vicinity.

“That is an attack on the democratically expressed wishes of the people of his area.

“Sinn Féin will not be deterred by this mindless attack from providing services to the people of Turf Lodge and West Belfast by the thugs who carried out this attack. 

“These people have nothing to offer but intimidation and mindless violence. 

"They should desist and get off the backs of this community.

“And I call on anyone with any information on this attack to bring it forward to the police.”
