Attack on DUP councillors home‏

25 September, 2008

Sinn Féin Mayor of Newry and Mourne, Councillor Colman Burns has said he is shocked by a recent attack on a DUP Councillor's home in Newtownhamilton on Thursday.

Cllr Burns said:

"Wednesday's attack was completely reprehensible. Those involved in these anti-community attacks are unrepresentative of the Newtownhamilton Community.

"Such attacks in the past have resulted in death or serious injury and those responsible need to realise the possible consequences of their actions. At a time when communities are striving to cement peace and encourage reconciliation it would appear that there is a small minority intent on causing hurt. They can have no place in our society and those involved should hang their heads in shame.

"I would call on anyone who has any information regarding this incident to come forward." ENDS
