Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said the party has been working to provide reassurances to the community of Park after weapons, including firearms were recovered from the local graveyard on Saturday.

Caoimhe Archibald said:

“The local community of Park are very concerned about this incident.

“They were shocked to hear weapons including two loaded shotguns and knives were recovered from a graveyard on Saturday.

“There is absolutely no place for these weapons in society and particularly a place regarded by local people as sacred.

“Apparently this incident is believed to connected to a feud.

“Saturday’s incident could have been a lot more serious only for police action to prevent an escalation in this dispute. 

“Sinn Féin party representatives have been actively involved in meetings with the police and the council in an effort to lower tensions and reassure the local community.”
