It was reported that sometime during the afternoon of Friday 30th November sectarian graffiti was scratched into the plaster on the walls of the memorial. Anyone who witnessed the incident or who noticed any unusual activity in the area is asked to contact police at Newtownhamilton Police Station on 0845 600 8000. Police are particularly keen to speak with the occupants of a silver coloured Volkswagen Bora seen in the area at approximately 4pm on Friday 30th November. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Sinn Féin councillor Turlough Murphy condemned the attacked.
