29 Dec – Murders of Billy Wright & Seamus Dillon

RECENT MURDERS OF SEAMUS DILLON & BILLY WRIGHT
STATEMENT BY MOST REVEREND SEAN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH AND PRIMATE OF ALL IRELAND

I condemn the shootings of recent days which have claimed two lives and injured others. I offer my sympathy to the families and to those who have been injured. I call for calm and restraint at this time, a time when people are hoping, more keenly than ever, for peace and harmony. I appeal to everyone who genuinely wants peace not to allow the work of the peace-makers to be diverted by these killings.
