Attack on sports grounds ‘disgusting’ and should be condemned across society – Hargey 

Sinn Féin MLA Deirdre Hargey has described oil being poured over goal mounts at playing fields used by East Belfast GAA as ‘disgusting’.

The South Belfast MLA said:

“Tuesday nights barbaric attack on the Henry Jones playing fields, used by East Belfast GAA, is disgusting and should be condemned by all across society. 

“Disgraceful incidents like this do not represent the vast majority of people here who are focused on moving forward and on the future.

“All sporting organisations must stand together against these reckless attacks on these pitches and the clear attempt to stop the growth of Gaelic games in this area. It must stop.

“I am calling on all local political representatives to make to clear that there is no place for intimidation and that attacks on anyone playing sport must end now.”
