Sinn Féin’s Gearóid Ó hEára has described an arson attack on an election billboard in Derry as an attempt to attack the democratic process.
“An election billboard supporting my election campaign was destroyed by arsonists in the Buncrana Road area of the Derry overnight.
“This was not just an attack on my election campaign but an attempt to attack the wider democratic process.
“Election posters and billboards from all political parties should be treated with respect.
“This arson attack will not dissuade me or any other Sinn Féin activist and we will not deterred from delivering a first-class constituency service, standing up for communities, promoting equality and opposing austerity.” Ends/Críoch
