Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has condemned the shooting of a man and woman in the Turf Lodge area of west Belfast. 


Mr Sheehan said; 


"The shooting of a man and woman in their 50s at a house in Norglen Parade in Turf Lodge was wrong and I condemn it. 


"There can be absolutely no justification for these type of actions. 


"Whoever is responsible needs to stop these barbaric attacks immediately. 


"I would call on anyone with information on this attack to bring it forward to the PSNI."

Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff said Communities Minister Paul Givan has moved as a result of public outrage to reverse a disgraceful decision to remove the Líofa bursaries. 

Barry McElduff said: 

“The decision to cut the Líofa bursary of £50k for disadvantaged children was disgraceful. 

“While this reversal is welcome, it is a decision that should never have been taken. 

The DUP has demonstrated contempt for the Irish Language and that must change.  

“The rights of the Irish Language speakers need to be recognised and respected.”
