Sinn Féin Comment On Lurgan Bomb Find

19 April, 2006


Commenting after the discovery of component parts for a bomb in Lurgan, Sinn Féin Upper Bann Assembly member John O'Dowd said:

"It has been alleged that this device is the work of one of the republican micro organisations. These groups are opposed to the peace process and opposed to the Good Friday Agreement. The discovery of this device has ensured disruption and inconvenience for local people and has caused anger within the community.

"These groups have little or no support within this community and they do not have a strategy to deliver Irish unity and independence.

"It is incumbent on all of us in political leadership to make it clear that politics can work and that politics can deliver change.

"I would call on those responsible for this incident to look objectively at the current political situation and to carefully consider your options. This sort of activity does nothing for this community and is an attack on the peace process which is supported by the overwhelming number of people on this island.

"This activity is wrong and should stop." ENDS
