Omagh GAA club ransacked in burglary thanks community for support

A GAA club in Omagh has thanked the community for its support after its clubrooms were ransacked in a burglary.

Thieves broke into St Enda's on the Killybrack Road sometime between 9pm on Monday and 8am on Tuesday.

The clubrooms were substantially damaged and a number of items taken. Safes, which were bolted to walls, were ripped out.

St Enda's was forced to cancel all in-door activities because of the wrecking spree.

"It is deeply disappointing that much of the recent good work carried out by our club volunteers has been undone," the club said.

"But we will not allow this despicable attack on our club to set us back and we are confident our members will rally round to help put things right as soon as possible."

Police are appealing for information.

On Wednesday the club thanked all those who had offered support following the devastating attack.

"It is at times like this that we truly appreciate the strength of the GAA and wider community as everyone unites in condemnation of the cowards whose motives are totally at odds with what decent society expects," it said in a Facebook post.

A clean up operation has been planned for 6.30pm on Wednesday and the club invited the local community to take part.
