Ballytyrone Orange Hall attack was sectarian crime

3 July, 2015 - by Mickey Brady

Sinn Féin MP Mickey Brady has said that burning of the Ballytyrone Orange Hall was a hate crime and needs to be condemned.

 Mr Brady said,

 “Those people who deliberately targeted and destroyed an Orange Hall offer nothing to any community and do not represent the vast majority of people in the area who are disgusted by the attack.

 “This was a sectarian hate crime, pure and simple, and sectarianism does not have any place in Republican ideology and needs to be opposed every time it raises its head.

 “The Orange Hall was a community asset and should have been respected as such and I am sure the entire community will rally around in order to see this hall restored again as soon as possible.”
