A primary seven classroom was destroyed in the fire

A 13-year-old boy has been arrested and charged over an arson attack on a primary school in County Antrim.

A 15-year-old boy is being questioned about the fire, which destroyed one classroom and damaged 10 others at St Louis’ Primary School in Ballymena.

Extra police are to be deployed in the town following a series of attacks.

School principal Liam Corey said the fire was in a classroom used by primary seven pupils about to return to school for 11-plus transfer test preparations.

“As everyone knows, primary sevens are immediately into a stressful period preparing for the transfer test, so that is quite unfortunate from their point of view,” he said.

“The caretaker had spent all summer making sure the school was in great condition for the start of the new year.

“The teachers had been in, not just this week but last week, preparing.”

The attack came just one day after nearby St Mary’s Primary in the Harryville area was petrol bombed.

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Policing Gerry Kelly has said that the PSNI have abjectly failed to tackle the ongoing unionist paramilitary campaign against Catholics and nationalists.

Mr Kelly said:

“Over the past number of weeks the sectarian campaign being waged against Catholics and nationalists in areas like North Antrim has intensified. It has not met with a robust response from the PSNI. In fact the contrary would appear to be the position.

“Instead of confronting those organisations responsible too often the PSNI have publicly failed to even acknowledge that the motivation behind this campaign is sectarian. In doing so they are providing cover for those behind the nightly attacks. It sends out a message that there is a toleration of loyalist violence and an acceptance that these attacks will continue without hindrance.

“People feel that unionist paramilitaries are being allowed to set the agenda. Vulnerable and isolated nationalist communities are being exposed to a completely unacceptable level of violence and intimidation.

“It is a widely accepted fact that the PSNI control agents at every level within these loyalist gangs. There is a suspicion that it is this relationship which is dictating the softly softly approach being adopted by the PSNI on the ground to these attacks.

“In recent weeks we have had 5 murders directly linked to the UVF. We have had scores of attacks on nationalists, these attacks continued again last night, yet people are not appearing before the courts. It is simply not believable to suggest that the PSNI are doing their level best to address this situation.” ENDS

LABOUR leader Pat Rabbitte has urged the Government to appoint a mediator to resolve the Corrib gas pipeline impasse.

Oil company Shell Ireland last night said it was still exploring all possible avenues that would allow five Mayo farmers purge their contempt of a High Court order.

The so-called Rossport Five have spent the past 63 days in a Dublin prison arising from their opposition to the controversial project.

Mr Rabbitte said: “The ongoing incarceration of five law-abiding citizens because of their convictions that the Shell operation at Rossport, Co Mayo, may pose a risk to health and life is now bordering on becoming a national disgrace.”

He suggested Shell waive its interests under the High Court injunction that led to the men’s imprisonment – and that the five simultaneously apologise to the court.

He said the Government should appoint an agreed mediator who would report on all issues of concern to the men.

Mr Rabbitte said since the oil companies concerned were the principal beneficiaries of the find off the Mayo coast, it was entirely reasonable they be required to spell out “what benefits will accrue to this underdeveloped region arising from this significant gas find in Irish waters.”

A delegation of Independent TDs will travel to Cloverhill Prison to meet the men today.

Yesterday, the Shell to Sea group, supporting the Rossport Five, held a peaceful lunchtime protest outside the Norwegian Embassy in Dublin.

Statoil, the Norwegian state oil company holds 36.5% equity in the consortium behind the Mayo gas project.

A spokesperson for the group said as majority shareholders in Statoil, the Norwegian government must instruct the oil company to cease participation in “an unsafe pipeline” that does not have the consent of the Rossport residents.

“We trust that the Norwegian government will now act honourably by ending Statoil’s shameful participation and abuse of the Rossport Five, their families and community immediately,” the spokesperson added.

The group plans a blockade of the Statoil premises in Dublin docks on September 10, followed by a protest outside the Dáil on October 1.

**A little Colombian holiday for the gardaí…

31/08/2005 – 19:30:53

Gardaí are expected to travel to Colombia as part of their investigation into three Irishmen convicted of training rebels there, it emerged tonight.

The alleged IRA members, known as the Colombia Three, unexpectedly appeared in Ireland earlier this month after being on the run since the December convictions.

Justice Minister Michael McDowell today told a Cabinet meeting that no extradition warrant for the men has yet been issued by the South American country.

A Government spokesman said: “The Cabinet heard that gardaí have been in touch with police authorities in Colombia through Interpol.

“Mr McDowell also indicated that it was probable that there will be a trip by gardaí to Colombia to make further inquiries.”

The Garda Press Office would not comment tonight on the specific purpose of this proposed journey.

James Monaghan, Niall Connolly and Martin McCauley presented themselves at Dublin garda stations two weeks ago for voluntary garda questioning about how they arrived in Ireland.

Mr Connolly was later arrested on a charge of obtaining a false Irish passport and detectives sent a file to the Director of Public Prosecutions on the matter.

Gardaí have been investigating how the three men got back to Ireland.

There have been Opposition calls for the men either to be returned to Colombia, or to serve their jail sentences in Ireland.

Authorities in Colombia have yet to make an extradition request for the men.

The whereabouts of the three men, who were convicted in their absence of training rebels in Colombia, has been unknown since one of them appeared on RTE on August 5.

They were first arrested four years ago and were initially acquitted of charges of training FARC rebels.

They were sentenced to 17 years in jail last December following an appeal by Colombia’s state prosecutor.

Their re-appearance came a week after the IRA’s July 28 pledge to end its 36-year armed campaign and pursue its aims through peaceful means.

The three men were arrested at Bogota’s El Dorado Airport in August 2001 as they boarded an international flight.

A group of TDs including Socialist Party deputy Joe Higgins has vowed to pressure the Government to renegotiate the contract governing the Corrib gas project in Co Mayo.

Mr Higgins and six independent TDs made the pledge after a prison visit to the five local men jailed for obstructing work on a pipeline being built as part of the scheme.

The men, who have been in prison for nine weeks, believe the structure poses an unacceptable risk to the health of the local community.

They have also criticised the contract the Government signed with the global oil giant Shell, which is developing the scheme.

Under the contract, the Government receives no royalties from the gas in the Corrib field.

Speaking after today’s meeting, Mr Higgins accused the Government of giving away Ireland’s natural resources and said he and his colleagues would be demanding a renegotiation of the deal when the Dail resumes in the coming weeks.

The involvement of loyalist terrorists in a new unionist campaign to oppose a united Ireland was attacked by the SDLP today.

Members of a number of Protestant and loyalist organisations, including the UDA and UVF, were present yesterday when the campaign was launched in Larne.

Featuring 200,000 newspapers and a website opposed to “unremitting concessions to republicanism”, the campaign was launched by a former DUP election candidate, a representative of the Shankill Mirror newspaper, the relatives of an IRA victim and Orange Order Grand Master Robert Saulters.

UDA leader Jackie McDonald took part in a symbolic launch of a Shankill mirror edition featuring the headline “Ulster at Crisis Point”. Other members of his organisation and the UVF also reportedly took part in the launch.

SDLP deputy leader Alasdair McDonnell said the campaign was “deeply irresponsible” and singled out the Orange Order for particular criticism.

“It is utterly disgraceful at a time when loyalist paramilitaries are killing each other and terrorising the nationalist community that the Orange Order should have come together with them on a campaign against a united Ireland,” he said.

A north Belfast pastor is planning on taking to the streets this weekend for a ‘prayer walk’ aimed at halting the loyalist feud.

For the last two nights, Pastor Jack McKee from the New Life City Church and members of his congregation spent hours delivering leaflets to houses in the Ballysillan and Silverstream areas where several murders and shootings have occurred in recent weeks.

The leaflets are being used to inform local residents of a series of prayer walks which will be taking place each Sunday for the next four weeks.

Following a set rota, a total of 50 ‘New Lifers’ will be turning out in teams to pray both for an end to the feud and for those families who have suffered as a result of recent paramilitary violence.

Speaking yesterday, before the last of the leaflets were delivered, Pastor McKee said: “All too often, the church is seen as the silent voice in the community. We at New Life want to try and reverse that and give the church a voice.

“When people are killed or seriously injured, it’s usually the minister who goes to the hospital or who goes to see the bereaved families.

“So, rather than just being there for people, our church wants to try and prevent the bereavements and hospital visits from happening.”

Pastor McKee spent Monday evening and last night delivering leaflets in north Belfast.

When asked about the mood in Ballysillan, Pastor McKee said: “There is still quite a lot of tension.

“Local people appreciate things are quiet at the minute but many feel this is a lull and there are concerns plans are afoot for more lives to be taken in the coming weeks.”

The Belfast pastor also revealed that during the prayer walks, leaflets will also be handed out to “the leadership of the organisations involved in the feud” as well as members of the security forces to ensure their presence is known.

The first prayer walk is due to take place between 9pm and midnight on Sunday.

Each person taking part in the walks will be wearing a white armband with a red cross.

Residents have also been invited to speak with team members or pass on a note with prayer needs when they are out on the street.

Special police patrols have been deployed in north Antrim following a series of sectarian attacks on Catholic Churches and schools in Ballymena.

Overnight, St Louis’ Primary School on Cullybackey Road was badly damaged after it was set alight.

A PSNI spokesman said the window of a classroom was forced and an accelerant poured in and set alight.

The fire caused damage to the classroom floor and smoke damage to the room and surrounding area of the school.

It was the second school to be attacked within 24 hours.

Six independent TDs and Socialist Party deputy Joe Higgins are due to visit the so-called Rossport Five in prison today to show their support for the jailed protestors.

The five Co Mayo men have been in jail for around nine weeks for refusing to obey an injunction ordering them not to obstruct work on the Corrib gas pipeline.

The men believe the high-pressure structure poses an unacceptable risk to the safety of the local community.

They and their supporters want gas from the Corrib field to be pumped to an offshore terminal rather than directly onshore via the controversial pipeline.

Today’s meeting is part of ongoing efforts to secure the men’s release from prison.

They want the global oil firm Shell to lift the injunction it has taken out against them, but the company is refusing to do so and has pointed out that they can secure their own freedom by agreeing not to breach the court order.

An arson attack on a Catholic primary school in County Antrim is being treated as sectarian by police.

Fire crews were called to Saint Louis Primary School on the Cullybackey Road in Ballymena at about 2300 BST on Tuesday.

A window had been broken and liquid poured in and set alight. One classroom was destroyed and ten others sustained smoke damaged.

On Monday, nearby Saint Mary’s Primary School was attacked with petrol bombs.

Windows were smashed and damage estimated at £1,000 was caused to the school in the Harryville area of the town.

Superintendent Terry Shevlin said police had allocated extra resources to the area following the spate of recent attacks.

“Over the past few weeks we have received additional resources following other incidents and the latest new resources will enable me to mount static police operations at vulnerable targets, such as Catholic schools,” he said.

Police have employed more resources in the area

“This is in addition to patrols in places like Dunclug, Ahoghill and Harryville, where there have been recent disturbances, and patrols aimed at disrupting the activities of those involved in the loyalist feud.”

Sinn Fein assembly member Philip McGuigan has condemned those responsible.

“This is another disgraceful attack on a primary school in Ballymena,” he said.

“People are absolutely sickened and disgusted at this continuing campaign.”

SDLP councillor Declan O’Loan said such attacks could not be blamed on a tiny section of the community and indicated a deep communal problem in the area.

“It is absolutely essential that the elected representatives go far beyond condemnation and start examining the primary causes of this very determined sectarian campaign against Catholic buildings,” he said.

Meanwhile, separate attack in County Antrim is also being treated as sectarian by police.

Paint was thrown at a house in Bleach Green Avenue in Newtownabbey on Tuesday night, damaging windows and walls.

DUP MP for East Antrim Sammy Wilson said he strongly condemned the attack.

“I don’t suppose there is any point in me making appeals because I suspect the people who carry out these acts are well beyond the persuasion of politicians,” he said.

“I think the community needs to be vigilant, anything that is seen suspicious needs to be reported to the police, the police must be active.”
