Graffiti on Salvation Army wall condemned by local Assembly Candidates

1 Mins read

Graffiti that appeared on the walls of the Salvation Army Church on the Ballycastle Road in Coleraine has been condemned by local candidates for the upcoming Assembly Elections.

A similar incident happened in September when “Refugees Not Welcome” was sprayed on the same wall.

Describing the incident as “unfortunate” Councillor William McCandless said : “It is unfortunate that the Salvation Army Church in Coleraine has been targeted again with graffiti concerning Islamic terrorists. On Easter Sunday, the highlight of the Christian calendar when the theme is of sacrificial love, why write a message of hate. I would appeal for anyone who has knowledge of this attack on the Church to report it to the PSNI.”

UKIP’s candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill also commented, saying :

It is disappointing to see graffiti being plastered on a wall located on the Ballycastle Road. Vandalism is a form of criminal damage which does nothing to enhance the image of Coleraine.

I condemn those responsible for this graffiti attack and I strongly appeal for anyone with any information regarding this incident to pass the information on to the police so that the people who carried out this vandalism can be dealt with in the appropriate manner.”
