Sectarian yobs target GAA club
There have been appeals for no retaliation after pitches belonging to a GAA club were daubed with sectarian slogans.
Vandals used weedkiller to write slogans on two football pitches belonging to the Augher St McCartan’s club in Co Tyrone.
No-one from the club was prepared to comment when contacted yesterday.
The vandalism, which is believed to have occurred during the last week, has led to fears of a renewed outbreak of attacks on community premises.
Last November three Orange halls and two GAA clubs were attacked within the space of a fortnight in the east of the county.
Spokesman for the Tyrone County GAA Board Damian Harvey described the attack as a pointless act and called for no retaliation.
Tom Elliott, an Ulster Unionist MLA for Fermanagh and South Tyrone, said those responsible would only raise tension in the area.
