 Sinn Féin MLA Declan Kearney has said effective legislation is needed to combat stalking. 

Mr Kearney said; 

"Stalking is a deeply insidious, invasive, psychological form of criminal abuse, with shocking side effects and consequences for victims.

"Despite that we still do not have a legal definition of stalking or effective legislation.

"Stalking is a breach of human rights and therefore undermines article 8 of the Human Rights Act. Yet here in the North it is not a specific criminal offence.

"Scottish law since 2010 has made stalking a specific criminal offence, and a priority crime. We should follow Scotland’s lead.

"Stalking is a crime which has existed for too long beyond the reach of the law in Ireland, north and south.

"This gap in our law should be closed by the Department of Justice and prioritised as an item of all island cooperation."

 Senior Men

Our senior men made a disappointing exit from the championship on Sunday, losing by two points to Silverbridge in a low scoring encounter in Cullyhanna, 0 – 8 to 0 – 6.

The Shanes played into a gale force wind in the opening half and despite have a number of decent chances they failed to score, shooting a total of nine wides over the thirty minutes. However, they did restrict their opponents to just four points, two from frees, and went in ay half-time confident they could overhaul the deficit in the second-half.

With the wind at their backs the Shanes made a great start to the second period and within ten minutes they were back on level terms thanks to points from Greg McCabe, Sean McLoughlin, Connaire Mackin and Paul O’Rourke. Two points in a row from Silverbridge edged them ahead again before another Greg McCabe point got the Shanes back to within one. The sides then swapped points with Sean McLoughlin pointing another free for the Shanes to leave just the minimum between them but Silverbridge finished the stronger side and added another point to claim the win by two, 0 – 8 to 0 – 6.

The senior men now have one league game left at home to Middletown with a date still to be confirmed.

Minor Boys

Despite a brilliant second-half performance from our minor boys last Monday night they lost by two points to Dromintee in the final of the Division 1 shield final, 2 – 8 to 1 – 9.

The Shanes lads made a terrible start to the game and found themselves 2 – 2 to no score after fifteen before Matthew Girvan pointed a free for his side. Dromintee fired over the next three points to lead by ten points before an Oisin O’Callaghan penalty reduced the deficit to seven before the same player scored a great point to leave his side six in arrears at the break, 2 – 5 to 1- 2.

An early Ciaron McMullan point gave the Shanes a good start to the second-half but it was quickly cancelled out by Dromintee’s sixth point of the game. Three points in a row from the Shanes, two from Matthew Girvan and one from Eamon McCabe, got the Camlough side back to within three with Dromintee replying with another point.  The Shanes responded in great fashion with two points from Oisin O’Callaghan and Matthew Girvan to leave just two between them but Dromintee increased their advantage to three with another point. With less than five minutes on the clock the Shanes went all out to get the equalising score and went close on a couple of occasions with Michael McParland fizzing a shot just wide of the far post before the Dromintee keeper made an excellent save to deny Matthew Girvan. Despite a late point from a 45 from Damian O’Hagan the Shanes just couldn’t back on level terms and Dromintee held on to claim the win by 2 – 8 to 1 – 9.

Despite the disappointment of Monday the minors have had a decent season, winning the Division 1 B league title and being competitive right throughout the year. Well done to all the lads and their management team for their hard work and commitment over the season.

 Sinn Fein MLA has called on the PSNI to investigate the distribution of racist literature in the Larne area. 

The East Antrim MLA said; 

"I have been contacted by constituents from Larne who were extremely concerned after receiving racist literature through their door from a group calling itself Ulster Awake. 

"These racist and hate-filled leaflets are sinister and concerning and will doubt cause cause fear in the community. 

"There can be no place in society for racism, intolerance, discrimination or intimidation and such attitudes must be challenged wherever they arise. 

"I will be contacting the PSNI and calling on them to investigate these leaflets and those responsible for them."
