“Newtownhamilton Sectarian Graffiti is Antithetical to Republicanism” – Connolly
Aontú Armagh Representative Daniel Connolly has condemned sectarian graffiti in Newtownhamilton.
Speaking today, Mr Connolly said “The Newtownhamilton graffiti is absolutely disgusting. This dark display of sectarian hatred has no place in modern society. It’s completely divorced from the meaning of republicanism, which Protestants have always played a prominent part in.”
Mr Connolly continued “Over the past few years we’ve seen great strides in reconciliation and cross-community solidarity. The people of the North are almost unanimously united in their support of this. This horrendous display of hatred is abhorrent to true republicanism”
“In Aontú, we continue to believe in and promote a Republicanism based on the ideals of Tone. A Republicanism that unites us rather than divides us. A republicanism for Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter.” Mr Connelly concluded
