Graffiti at Dunclug

“This is a disgraceful and disgusting attempt at intimidation. Sadly it is a reflection of the attitude of some in our society who show hatred and no respect for their neighbours simply because they are Protestants.

“I would appeal for anyone with information about this sinister development to come forward to the police.”
