South Antrim Alliance Councillor David Ford has condemned last Friday’s murder of Mr. Gerry Devlin at St. Edna’s GAA club in Glengormley.
Councillor Ford said: “I would like to reiterate my condemnation of this horrific crime and I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to Mr. Devlin’s family. And as we approach Christmas – this brutal murder seems particularly repugnant.
“There is increasing belief among local people and members of the security forces that the murder was sectarian. This community wants no part in a killing which can in no way be justified for any cause – political, sectarian or otherwise.
“And I would call on anyone with information about this terrible deed to contact the police immediately and bring those involved to justice”.
