“there is a small number of people intent on dragging us backwards..”

Local Sinn Féin councillor Dessie Ward was reasonably quick to condemn the attack on Seagoe Orange Hall, in Portadown, in the early hours of Thursday morning – one of a number of attacks noted yesterday. So what exactly was a member of Ógra Shinn Féin, the party’s youth wing, doing on the roof of another Orange Hall, in Newcastle Co Down, in the early hours of Friday morning.. Adds It’s not clear from the Newsletter report which date this occured on, it may actually have been last Saturday morning.. ie before yesterday’s statement was made.
