‘There can be no excuses for the type of public disorder witnessed in the Holylands area of south Belfast in the early hours of this morning”, says Lily Kerr the local Workers Party representative.
‘This is drunken disorder, vandalism and anti-social behaviour. There can be no excuses and no justification”, Lily said
‘If students have been involved then there is an onus on their university to hold them to account. For many of those involved their stay in the Holylands will be temporary, but for the long term residents of the area this represents yet another night of disruption, damage and fear’
‘Everyone with influence must work to ensure these scenes are not repeated but the primary responsibility rests with those young people whose behaviour has caused these problems’, Lily concluded
