Co Antrim church target of ‘sectarian attack’
C

TUV Alderman Stewart McDonald has called those who carried out a “sectarian” paint attack in Grange Village near Ahoghill, as ‘mindless vandals’.

TUV Alderman Stewart McDonald: “Last night some mindless vandals painted tricolours on a number of a number items of public property including curb-stones in Ahoghill. Such childish behaviour will soon be cleaned up but altogether more sinister is what happened at Ballyscullion Church of Ireland where an Irish tricolour was painted on the back of the building.

“Everyone knows that the tricolour is the chosen symbol of the PIRA who murdered Protestants in Northern Ireland for 30 years. This action is therefore deeply sectarian and threatening.

“I would appeal for anyone who witnessed anything suspicious last night to contact police so that those responsible for this intimidation can be brought to justice.”
