Sinn Féin MP comments on school arson attack

4 July, 2007



Newry and Armagh MP Conor Murphy has expressed his anger and disgust at the news of an arson attack on Rathore School in Newry.

"I want to express my sympathy and concern regarding the arson attack at Rathore School. An attack on a school is an attack on the community, and those who through these type of acts of vandalism deprive our children, indeed our most vulnerable children of the right, to the best that we can offer them in terms of education and quality of life, can have no place within that community"

The MP appealed to all to assist in the prevention of any further malicious attacks on not only Rathore but at all schools.
