REPUBLICAN EX-PRISONERS SUPPORT OFFICES ATTACKED

Vandals smashed over a dozen windows at the offices of a support group which provides vital services for hundreds of republican ex-POWs in the Moor over the weekend.


Sinn Fein representatives have condemned the attack on Tar Abhaile

Repairing the damage at the Tar Abhaile office could be substantial, costing hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds, as the glass windows need to be replaced.

The incident in West End Park was condemned by Sinn Fein representatives, Sean McMonagle who works with Tar Abhaile, and The Moor district Councillor Colly Kelly.

Sean McMonagle described the vandals as "idiots, criminals and hoods" and questioned whether the attack may have been deliberately timed following Thursday's election.

The police are appealing for information and encourage people to call 101 quoting the reference number 741, or to contact Crimestroppers anonymously by telephoning 0800 555 111.
