Dornan calls for calm following war memorial vandalism

Alliance Lisburn Councillor Brian Dornan has condemned those who threw paint over the Glenavy war memorial on Sunday night. This attack follows a similar attack on the Stoneyford war memorial and sectarian graffiti which was daubed on churches in Glenavy and Stoneyford.

Cllr Brian Dornan said: “I would call for calm following the spate of vandalism in the area. There can be no justification for these types of sectarian ‘tit-for-tat’ attacks.

“I am deeply saddened by the attack on the Glenavy war memorial. People from all backgrounds fought in World War One. Commemoration of the Great War does not belong to just one group; everybody should remember those who lost their lives in this conflict.

“Those responsible for this vandalism must face justice in the courts, so I would urge anybody with any information about this attack to contact the Police.”
