‘Malicious fire damage to two Orange Halls and a Presbyterian Church in Co Donegal within a two–week period is a very unfortunate and regrettable development.

‘The people of Convoy and of Newtowncunningham most affected by the willful damage to these buildings have been assured that these incidents are deplored by the whole community.

‘It is heartening to hear local political, community and church leaders speaking with one voice in condemning the attacks and in acknowledging that such incidents cause distress and sadness to themselves as well as to the whole community.’
