Unionist Outreach: Another attack on Orange hall

Or is this part of the fight against Catholic oppression in Glenavy? Anyone keeping track on how many attacks there's been against Orange Halls in the last year?

There has been an attempt to set fire to an Orange Hall in County Antrim.

It happened early on Wednesday morning when tiles were removed from the roof of the Fourscore Orange Hall, near Glenavy, and a flammable liquid poured into the building.

Minor damage was caused to the property, which has been destroyed in two previous arson attacks.

Republican? Would that be your own spin on it?

As much as this shouldn't happen, Republicans have nothing to do with it.

The OO will have to stop damaging their own halls. Money is flowing freely from Europe and the Rep and what better way to get funding.

Seriously, why would any one else damage OO halls when everyone knows "arson" attacks and "paint dobbing" will get money to them much quicker?

Nobody is ever caught and no-one is ever seen when these attacks happen. Something sinister is at play methinks.

Perhaps they can get extra help from the fire brigade to fix it up?

Willie Frazer has a special section entitled "Attacks by Catholic Extremists".
The last entry: Thursday, 15 July 2010 Fourth night of Catholic riots in Belfast.
Needless to say there is no mention of the three nights of "protestant" riots in September which injured over sixty PSNI officers.

Good points there purple, grounds for a Police investigation IMO.

Well you would think with so many OO halls being damaged, someone would see something, somewhere, sometime. A farmer's gate was knicked, dragged to the hall, put up against the wall, someone had to climb it, pull slates of the roof, etc, etc. This didn't take a minute. Yet no-one sees absolutely nothing. Jusk asking like.

Loyalists trying to burn down their halls again? What are they after.... Sympathy or more funding? Both I say.
There is no evidence of that whatever.

These attacks are attacks on private property, and in any democratic society there can be no excuse for outside destruction of private property for no reason save a desire to vandalize. Loyalist thugs respond in kind with attacks on GAA clubs.

This nonsense must stop on both sides.

Indeed don and the question I would ask is how come forensics have not come up with anything?

Except for the time the Sinn Fein employee was found lying in the grounds of an Orange Hall after falling off the roof drunk while trying to torch the place?

I suppose the orange Order kidnapped him and deliberately left him there??


I would be shocked but not surprised pal.
