Castlewellan GAA hall attacked

It seems increasing likely that an arson attack on a Castlewellan GAA hall had a sectarian motivation. The hall also functions as a local comunity centre. Sinn Fein has appealed for calm and blamed negative comments about the GAA. The DUP has called for attacks to cease and the Grand Secretary of the Orange Order has said:

“An arson attack on any community hall is an attack on the whole community and must be condemned by everyone. Anyone with any information about this attack should contact the police immediately.”
