Murphy slams attack on Ardoyne memorial
Sinn Féin Councillor Ryan Murphy has branded an attack on a Republican Memorial in Ardoyne last night an ‘outrageous act’.
The North Belfast Councillor said:
“The Republican memorial in Ardoyne was attacked last night in what appears to be a sectarian attack.
“The memorial - including the names of the area’s patriot dead - was attacked with paint during the night.
“This attack is outrageous and does nothing other than cause distress for the family and friends whose loved ones are named on the memorial.
“I would like to commend local republicans and residents who speedily repaired the memorial this morning.
“If anyone has any information about those responsible for this vile attack I would urge them to bring it forward to the police.”
