Sinn Féin Councillor condemns Poleglass shooting

15 May, 2007

Sinn Féin Councillor Angela Nelson has condemned the gun attack on house in Poleglass.

Ms Nelson said:

"I unreservedly condemn this attack whatever the motivation of those involved. The two women who were in the house at the time have been severely traumatised by the incident. Shooting into a home recklessly endangered not only the occupants but the entire local community. "

"Sinn Féin has been actively working with local community groups to build a sustainable community in Poleglass and this activity adds nothing to the lives of that community. Those responsible for this attack have nothing to offer the people of Poleglass.

"I call on those involved to think carefully about their actions and the potential repercussions and to immediately end this reckless activity." Deireadh
