The house of a Catholic family in the county Antrim village of Rasharkin has been targeted for the second time in a month. The attackers, believed to be loyalists, pulled up outside the house in the early hours of Sunday morning and threw a petrol bomb which struck a front window. Fortunately no-one was injured.

Meanwhile local Sinn Féin representative Dáithí McKay has reported a threat made against him on the Facebook page of fellow North Antrim MLA, John Finlay. A 'friend' of the DUP man, who regularly accuses Sinn Féin - and McKay in particular - of links to a supposed 'ethnic cleansing' campaign in Rasharkin, replied to one of Finlay's posts with a suggestion that someone should put a bullet (or two) in the SF rep. The comment has since been removed.
It's unfortunate the fortress-like Orange Hall in Rasharkin attracts sectarian vandalism - as does GAA and AOH property in the area - but really it's time the DUP told it's reps to done down their rhetoric before someone gets hurt.
