Minister Martin condemns Derry car bomb

Northern Ireland Peace Process, Press Releases, Northern Ireland, 2010

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Micheál Martin T.D., has condemned last night’s car bomb incident on the Culmore Road in Derry. The Minister said:

"Such attacks are utterly wrong and entirely futile. I am relieved that no one was injured in last night’s incident but I appreciate that it caused fear and disruption to local residents. It is also an attack on the economic infrastructure in Derry at a time when everyone is trying to attract jobs, tourism and investment. The perpetrators are trying to undermine the future for our young people. The vast majority of people on this island will not let this misguided few to dictate or disrupt that future.

I totally condemn this latest attack and I urge anyone with relevant information to supply it to the PSNI.”
