Church attacked

EAST Derry SDLP Assembly Member John Dallat has described as “sacrilegious” the breaking of windows in St Patrick’s Church of Ireland, Kilrea.

Mr Dallat said: “I know the church doesn’t want to create a fuss about this but I feel it is my duty as a public representative to appeal to anyone who has any information about this scandalous and sacrilegious act to help the PSNI discovering who the misguided person or persons are doing this.

“The Church of Ireland community is to be commended for the wonderful work they have done to restore their church. “They have received the support of the whole community in their fund-raising efforts and the anger felt at the breaking of windows is felt equally by everyone.”
