I condemn the incident earlier this week where sectarian graffiti was painted on the doors of St Anthony’s Church, Willowfield.
This is an unwarranted and thuggish act of vandalism that belongs in the past. To attack a place of worship in such as way is beyond the pale, and something that cannot be tolerated. I would call upon anyone with any information to contact the local PSNI, so that those responsible can be held to account.
I know the vast majority of people in the locality would be shocked by this act. I hope that the damage can be repaired promptly to show these faceless bullies the futility of their actions.
