Statement by Minister Flanagan in relation to the attack on the PSNI


I unreservedly condemn those who left a device outside Holy Cross Church in Ardoyne last night. Having visited Holy Cross myself in July I’m well aware of the good work carried out at community level there. Those responsible for this vile attack have no support in the community and this is an attack on all those who support peace and the rule of law. We must all stand together to support our police services and to ensure that democratic politics works for the good of all our communities. I would urge anyone with information to pass it directly to the PSNI.
