Glass bottles launched over peace wall in Portadown

Obins Drive, Portadown

A number of items, including glass bottles, were launched over the peace wall in Portadown over the weekend.

Portadown councillor Paul Duffy has condemned what he describes as “sectarian attacks on family homes” in the Obins Drive area of the town.

Councillor Duffy said items were blindly thrown across the wall on Corcrain Road causing significant damage to properties on the other side.

The Sinn Fein representative said: “The attacks appear to have been launched from the loyalist bonfire site on the other side of the peace wall.

“I would call on those with influence in the Unionist community to help bring these sectarian attacks to an end.”
