Minister’s house attacked in Camlough…

Sinn Fein has a presser out this morning noting that the house of Conor Murphy has been attacked:

The home of Newry Armagh MP Conor Murphy has been attacked in the early hours of this morning (Friday June 5th). The Sinn Féin Regional Development Minister praised the response of the Fire Service and said that he would not be deflected from representing the local community or working towards Irish Unity.

Two cars were damaged in the attack on the family home in Camlough; the family home was vandalised with paint and there was scorch damage to a number of windows. The area remains cordoned off.

They have another reporting the closure of two polling stations in Lurgan (Tannaghmore and the Model Primary Schools) due to bomb scares… There would appear to be an anti election squeeze on…
