Security Alerts creating hardship and fear in Community says McShane

1 Mins read

A suspicious object was examined by police and ATO during a Security Alert in Ballycastle this afternoon. The object has been declared to be a hoax and has been removed for further examination.

Glens Independent Councillor Padraig McShane who lives nearby said; “We have had a number of hoax or suspect packages which have turned out to be false. Whomever is responsible, the alerts are creating hardship and fear within the local community.

“No violent Republicanism is present in the area. That leads to unanswered questions about the security apparatus and connections to Loyalist Paramilitaries.

I wish to seek further clarity around the composition of the device before commenting further”.
