Orange Order Condemns Attack on G.A.A. Club

The Grand Secretary of the Orange Order Drew Nelson has strongly condemned the arson attack on a GAA Club in Castlewellan, Co. Down.

“We believe the people who are behind this attack are only trying to stir up sectarian division in a part of the province where relations between the two communities have been steadily improving over the past number of years,” he said.
“An arson attack on any community hall is an attack on the whole community and must be condemned by everyone.
“Anyone with any information about this attack should contact the police immediately.”
