DUP and Sinn Féin react to attack on St Mary’s Chapel

Aaron Callan DUP councillor reacts to attack on St Mary’s Chapel Limavady.

“This is disgusting and vile and should be rightly condemned by everyone. There is no place for this kind of behaviour in our society be it an attack on a Chapel, Church or an Orange Hall. I hope anyone with information about this will come forward. Those responsible should reflect on their behaviour as it is criminal.”

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald said;

“Parishioners and locals are incensed by this disgraceful graffiti attack on St Mary’s Chapel, which is nothing more than blatant sectarian vandalism.

This attack comes after an increase in the numbers of paramilitary flags being flown and a surge in kerb painting in the town.

I would urge all elected and community leaders within unionism to show leadership in order to bring an end to the tensions in the area caused by marking territory in this way.

I would call on anyone with any information on this hate crime to bring it forward to the PSNI.”
