Dervock Chapel & how the UDA continue to be the Tail that Wags the PSNI & Unionist Dog 

 

Dervock Chapel

 
Loyalists have again raised a union flag in the grounds of a catholic chapel in Dervock during the lead up to the twelfth.Causeway Coast and Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane has hit out at political unionism and the PSNI when he stated;

“The hate involved in the raising of this flag in the grounds of a chapel stems not from the perpetrators themselves – who seem incapable of even the most basic of rational and simplistic of thought processing -but the clearly identifiable lack of political leadership in North Antrim and East Derry. The area continues to be the focus of racist and sectarian anti-Catholic and anti Irish sentiment both,in the local Council chamber and from some elected representatives from the Unionist community in the Stormont regime.


“Negative verbal musings from Unionist leaders on the Irish language, Gaelic Games, the identification with being Irish or Catholic all help to manifest the hate we see before us in Dervock.

“Furthermore, the PSNI have gone into hiding suggesting it is not a hate crime because no one reported it as such. The same incident was reported last year and yet no action was taken against the perpetrators who were actually in conversation with the PSNI while erecting the flag in the grounds of the chapel.

“I would call on anyone with any clout in the Unionist community, from the PSNI to the churches to civic society to begin to show leadership instead of pandering to UDA elements in the area.”
