Archibald meets with McDaid family on Ombudsman report

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin’s East Derry candidate Caoimhe Archibald has spoken of the disappointment of the family of Kevin McDaid at the findings of the Police Ombudsman into the circumstances surrounding his killing.

Speaking today Caoimhe Archibald said:

“The sectarian killing of Kevin McDaid is something that still hangs like a cloud over the community in Coleraine.

“Kevin’s family has lost a husband and a father while Kevin’s close friend Damien Fleming still receives care for lifelong injuries suffered in the same attack.

“The PSNI were very much aware of heightened tensions involving a UDA gang in the town at that time and indeed on the very day of Kevin’s killing.

“There is no escaping this fact nor indeed the circumstances of his killing which subsequently saw nine men jailed.

“After meeting with the McDaid family I understand they are disappointed at these findings.

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the McDaid family in their continuing campaign to get full disclosure about the circumstances of the killing of Kevin.”
