Attack on Bellaghy Orange Hall

Attack on Bellaghy Orange Hall

A Sinn Fein MLA has called on people to stop daubing graffiti on Bellaghy Orange hall and other premises in the town.

The call comes after the Co Londonderry hall was targeted for the second time in a week on Saturday morning.

Ian Milne has said whoever is responsible should stop immediately as they are damaging the image of the area.

“The last fortnight has seen graffiti painted at the local GAA club, commercial premises and now, for a second time, on the Orange hall,” he said.

“Over the last year substantial work has been carried out by various groups, including the local community group and the Bellaghy Development Association, to both enhance the image of the village and improve community relations.”

The Mid Ulster MLA added: “The people of Bellaghy are proud of the village and the ongoing improvement work which is being carried out.

“No-one wants to see any building in the village being defaced by unsightly graffiti, or community relations being damaged in any way.”
