Ahoghill graffiti targeting local councillor condemned
Graffiti that has appeared in Ahoghill overnight threatening local Sinn Féin councillor, Ian Friary, has been condemned.
TUV Alderman Stewart McDonald said:
“The graffiti which appeared overnight is wrong and will be condemned by all right thinking people.
“Our wee village doesn’t need this pointless vandalism which achieves nothing to further any cause.
“I have contacted the council asking for a speedy effort to clean up the vandalism.
“Anyone with information should come forward to the PSNI.”
Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim Philip McGuigan has condemned the ‘disgraceful and sectarian graffiti’ in Ahoghill village.
The North Antrim MLA said:
"I condemn this disgraceful sectarian graffiti against the catholic community and the threats against Councillor Ian Friary. There is no place in society for this kind of hatred and those responsible must be held to account.
"This is an attack on the entire community and an attempt to undermine democracy.“
Councillor Friary said:
"The PSNI informed me this morning about the graffiti and the threats. I have contacted the council to get this sectarian graffiti removed as quickly as possible. Neither I, nor Sinn Féin will be deterred by this. I will continue with my work and representing the entire community."
