Harryville Primary School Targeted

11 October, 2005

Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim Philip McGuigan has expressed his concern after the discovery of home made pipe bomb devices on the premises of a Primary school in Harryville linked to the recent campaign by Unionist paramilitaries in the area.

Mr McGuigan said:

"This clearly is another indication that Unionist paramilitaries in North Antrim are intent on creating difficulties and dangers for the community in this area.

"To leave these deadly devices in public is worrying, but I would have to ask what these people thought they were doing when leaving these things on the premises of a children's school.

"As a society we need to challenge the sectarian attitudes that exist. There can be no excuse for the targeting of a school whether it is catholic, protestant or indeed any other type of school.

"It is also essential that we close down the political vacuum that is being filled by loyalist sectarian violence." ENDS
