24 October, 2014 - by Michaela Boyle

Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle has condemned those responsible for causing a security alert in the Ballycolman area of Strabane.

The West Tyrone MLA said; 

"This incident has brought widespread disruption to the Ballycolman area of the town and must be condemned. 

"Children at Gaelscoil Uí Dhochartaigh had to be evacuated as a result of this alert. 

"The Gaelscoil was playing host to an international delegation of children from across Europe who are part of the comenius project at the time and the fear and distress on parents' faces was evident on their faces as they were arriving to lift their children.

"Those behind this incident showed absolutely no regard the people of Ballycolman. 

"These actions are being carried out by a small minority with no support and need to stop  immediately."
