Methodist Church attack condemned

29 September, 2005

Sinn Féin Assembly member for North Belfast Gerry Kelly has hit out at those responsible for a paint bomb attack on Greencastle Methodist Church on the Whitwell Road in the early hours of this morning.

Mr Kelly said:

" There can be no possible justification or excuse for this attack Greencastle Methodist Church. Political and community leaders need to make it clear that this sort of sectarian behaviour is completely and totally unacceptable.

"Sectarian attacks on churches, community halls, businesses and homes from whatever quarter need to end. The cycle of sectarianism and violence needs to be tackled and addressed. There is a role for everyone within this society in standing up to sectarianism and prejudice if we are to move forward in the time ahead." ENDS
