Shock at fatal Ballycastle stabbing

21 04 2013


SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has expressed his shock after the fatal stabbing of a young man in the Stroanshesk Park area of the town on Sunday afternoon.

 Mr Cunningham said:

“The victim of this horrific attack, Kevin O’Neill is from a well known and respected Ballycastle family and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at what must be an extremely difficult time.

“People in this area are in a total state of shock and this attack represents an attack not just on Mr O’Neill but the wider community also.

“Knife crime has no place on the streets of Ballycastle or anywhere else and we need tough sentencing laws to get through to people that carrying and using knives is not acceptable.”
