14 Jul – Damage to Orange Halls and a Church
PRESS STAEMENT ON THE DAMAGE TO A NUMBER OF ORANGE HALLS
AND A CHURCH OF IRELAND CHURCH
From Cardinal Seán Brady
I wish to condemn unreservedly the damage caused to three Orange Halls and a Church of Ireland Church last night by Petrol Bombers. I call on those responsible or anyone contemplating such attacks to desist, there is not, nor can there ever be, any justification for such attacks. Acts of violence lead to further acts of violence and following the horrific murders of Richard, Mark and Jason Quinn it is incumbent on all to stop this madness. Such actions do not lend to the building of new relationships, which are so badly needed.
I offer my sympathy to all those affected by these latest attacks.
