Minister Martin condemns violence in Belfast

Northern Ireland Peace Process, Press Releases, Northern Ireland, 2010

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Micheál Martin T.D., deplored the incidents in Belfast over past two nights which have resulted in injuries, including to PSNI officers, as well as damage to property. The Minister said:

“I call on people from across the community - paraders and protesters- to show restraint and respect for all traditions on the Twelfth of July and throughout the year. Last night’s disturbances in Ardoyne serve only to damage the community within Ardoyne and good relations more generally.”
