Andrews condemns bomb attack on home in Loughinisland
The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. David Andrews TD, has condemned last night's bomb attack on a home in Loughinisland, Co. Down.
Mr. Andrews said:
"I hope that the man injured last night will make a speedy recovery and I also extend my good wishes to his wife, who appears to have narrowly escaped injury. It is no thanks to those who carried out this evil attack that his injuries are apparently not serious. The people of Loughinisland have already suffered greatly at the time of the murderous attack on O’Toole’s Bar during the 1994 World Cup. It is simply intolerable that violence should once again be visited on their community.
Those calling themselves the Orange Volunteers, who have claimed responsibility for this and other recent attacks, are the enemies of the people of Ireland, North and South, who wish to see the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement."
