The Workers Party have
condemned the brutal beating to death of a 49 year old Coleraine man as an act of naked sectarian murder.
General Secretary and Belfast spokesman John Lowry said that the killing of 49 year old
father of four Kevin McDaid was a callous act which had to be condemned by all right thinking people.
brutal nature of the killing of Kevin McDaid was appalling. He was beaten and
kicked to death by a gang of up to 30 people and somebody must have information which could bring his killers to justice. I would appeal to anyone who knows anything to pass on this information to the police
because no society can call itself civilised as long as such people can be sheltered”.
of Mr. McDaid is also a stark reminder of how far Northern Ireland still has to travel to achieve not just peace, but reconciliation. Sectarianism
is a crime no matter which side commits it and must be eliminated through education, tolerance and reconciliation”,
said John Lowry.
