Social Democratic and Labour Party Councillor Noreen McClelland has condemned those behind a vile attack on local facilities that saw excrement smeared on goalposts due to be used by Wolfe Tones GAC today.
Councillor Noreen McClelland said:
“This is a really vile attack on local facilities and the victims are young kids who just want to play football with their friends. I have heard concerns from local people about littering and waste at the Valley 3G pitches but this incident is deeply distressing.
“I can’t begin to understand the mentality of someone who would smear excrement on goalposts. There are very young children who take part in the training sessions that Wolfe Tones GAC run at the Valley. Who in their right mind thinks it’s ok to target children like this?
“I have contacted officials at Antrim and Newtownabbey Council to address this matter urgently. Everyone using our facilities, especially children and young people, should be able to do so feeling safe and secure.”
