UDA 'forced family from home over Ireland T-shirt'

A Protestant mother of three has claimed the UDA forced her family from her Coleraine home after one of her children was seen wearing an Ireland T-shirt.

The woman said her house was petrol-bombed because her 18-year-old son was spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan 'I support Ireland' - in support of the country’s sports teams.

The woman was in her home with two young daughters in their home in the loyalist Millburn area, when a device was thrown through her window, which failed to ignite.

John Dallat, MLA, said the UDA still had a grip on the area and the outlawed group “have an appalling history of abuse towards anyone who disagrees with them”.
