Campaign continues against one Ballymurphy family

A low level war continues to be conducted against one family in Ballymurphy. Though it has not claimed further human life, there have been over 600 attacks on properties belonging to the Notorantonio family since two of them were charged with the murder of Gerald Devlin. According to the Sunday World (not online), the house belonging to Charlotte Burns has been attacked more than a hundred times. The family insists that the IRA is not directly involved but, Victor Notorantonio claims, it is being conducted by “the ‘rugrats’ who now rule this area were created by the IRA to get rid of us”
