Police in Northern Ireland are investigating graffiti found in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, reading “no Irish, no gay” as a hate crime. The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said they received a report of criminal damage on Friday (18 August), however, according to local residents, the graffiti was not new, and had been there for a “number of years”. Peter Lavery, the Alliance Party councillor for the Lurgan district, said that graffiti bearing the anti-LGBTQ+ slogan was initially spotted in the town in 2021. However, he believed, this instance of the same slogan was new.
