Police are treating the criminal damage at Henry Jones Playing Fields as sectarian. It follows a series of incidents targeting the club. 

I stand by East Belfast GAA after this latest hate-filled incident and I call on all parties to do the same,” said Councillor Long. 

This is sadly not the first time the club has been targeted. It is beyond tiresome that a club just wanting to play sport and contribute positively to the local community once again faces this bigotry and hatred. 

I call on anyone with information on this incident to contact police with it immediately.”
