Arson attack on Orange Hall was wrong - Sinn Féin

15 July, 2006

Sinn Féin assembly member for Upper Bann, John O'Dowd, has said that an overnight arson attack on an Orange hall at Kilmore, outside Lurgan, was wrong and unacceptable.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"Sectarianism, irrespective of its source or who or what it is directed against, is wrong and I have no hesitation in condeming this attack.

"Those involved need to desist from this type of behaviour. The overnight arson attack on Kilmore Orange Hall was wrong and serves no purpose other than to create and heighten community tensions. Regardless of whoever was behind this, the reality is that such actions are totally unacceptable and should stop."ENDS
