Condemnation follows bonfire mockery of dead catholic teen

There has been condemnation following the revelation that loyalists erected a placard with the name of a recently deceased 16 year old catholic boy atop an 11th Night bonfire in Coleraine. After personally removing the sectarian item, the father of the child has been informed by the PSNI that loyalist paramilitaries have threatened to target him. The incident comes as bonfires across the north were lit adorned with pictures of Sinn Fein members, Irish national flags and ‘KAT’ placards. Last year, there was condemnation following the erection of placards on 11th night bonfires mocking the sectarian killing of a catholic boy in Ballymena.
