Stewart Dickson MLA said: “The violence we saw on Saturday night was disgraceful. Those responsible are a bunch of mindless thugs who should be condemned by all. There was absolutely no justification for this trouble.
“These thugs are giving Carrick a bad reputation. I would urge them not to repeat this trouble.
“I would encourage people to give the police their full support as they carry out their duties and I would urge anybody with any information about this trouble to contact them.”
