Minister Flanagan condemns attack on Donegal Orange Hall03 October 2014
The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan, TD, has condemned attack on Donegal Orange Hall
Statement by Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan, T.D.:
"I condemn last night’s arson attack on Convoy Orange Hall, Co. Donegal, and the vandalism at the nearby Presbyterian Church. These were attacks on the whole community in all of its diversity, a community which so many people work so hard to sustain. The attacks go against the vision of a peaceful and reconciled Ireland set out in the Good Friday Agreement and endorsed by the people of this island. Those who carried out the attacks, whatever their motive, are intolerant cowards whose criminal actions destroyed a facility used by the entire community. I call on anyone with any information regarding those responsible to contact the Gardaí without delay. I wish to express my solidarity with all those affected by last night’s arson attack”.
