Statement from Bishop Harold Miller
on Ballytyrone Orange Hall arson attack


The Right Revd Harold Miller, Chairman of the Church of Ireland’s
Northern Ireland Community Relations Working Group, said:

‘Last night’s arson attack on Ballytyrone Orange Hall in Loughgall is a wholly unacceptable and disgraceful sectarian act. Such wilful destruction of the property of others is never justified and it is both very sad to see and deeply unhelpful to community relations at this particular time of year in the run up to the Twelfth of July.‘Like others, I would call on everyone in Northern Ireland to respect one another’s community traditions and value one another. I also join in the appeal for anyone with any information about this attack to pass it on to the PSNI for investigation.’
