Sinn Fein will not be deflected

Sinn Fein Councillor Brendan Curran, who is currently the Chairperson of Newry and Mourne Council, has expressed his sympathy to those injured in yesterday's bomb attack in Newtownhamilton, County Armagh.

Councillor Curran said:

``This action is clearly intended to undermine the current opportunity for peace. It must not be allowed to do so.

``We need an end to all armed actions.

``Sinn Fein will not be deflected from our peace strategy. We are determined to pursue a democratic peace settlement.''
