An Independent Councillor in Moyle has claimed that sectarian graffiti dubbed on the walls of a local GAA Club was an attack on the entire community.
Councillor Padraig Mc Shane was speaking after it had been revealed that the Ruairi Og Club in Cushendall had been attacked at the weekend.
The Councillor who continues at every opportunity to champion the GAA in Moyle Council said,
“Cushendall is a model village that simply does not do sectarianism. It has no history of it and it is no surprise that the local community removed every trace within hours of its discovery.
“The local Club is at the heart of the village and plays no small part in the enhancement of cross-community relations. This reason alone would have singled it out for targeting in the eyes of the moronic individuals who carried out the attack.
Councillor Mc Shane added,
“The site of the K.A.T. acronym for Kill All Taigs and UDA graffiti on the Ruairi Og’s clubrooms is a nauseating site to GAA fans everywhere. The GAA prides itself in its policy of not excluding members or participants on the grounds of gender, race, class, sexuality, disability or religion. Attacks like this won’t change that fact.
