Attack on Democracy

4 10 2014

SDLP Ballycastle Councillor Dónal Cunningham has condemned the overnight arson attack on the home of his independent council colleague Councillor Padraig McShane in the town.
Councillor Cunningham was speaking after the incident in Leyland Road, which saw considerable fire and smoke damage.

“Any attack on a democratically elected representative is an attack on democracy itself and is totally unacceptable” said Councillor Cunningham.

“This criminal behaviour is not welcome in Ballycastle. I hope the McShane family are able to move on from this ordeal.”

“I would urge anyone with any information to come forward and contact the police, and I hope the PSNI are able to apprehend the perpetrators.”
