A councillor in Ballycastle has said a club that was vandalised with sectarian graffiti will continue to go from strength to strength as he emphasised the positive aspect of being a Gael.
Independent Councillor Padraig McShane who sits on the development committee of the McQuillans GAC in Ballycastle said;
“The club has gone from strength to strength in the last number of years. The modern facilities have been promoted to the number one county ground as Casement Park undergoes redevelopment. Gaels locally are proud the venue played host to County league and Championship fixtures in the last few months when the hurlers of Cork, Offaly and Wexford all paid a visit.
“McQuillans have a zero tolerance to racism or sectarianism. Members are drawn from all backgrounds. A team of volunteers will gather and remove the damage this evening because the club has a magnificent place within the community.”
