The Northern Ireland Hospice has condemned sectarian graffiti daubed on the side of one of their shops in Co Antrim.

Graffiti with the phrase “Brits out of Ireland” was sprayed on the side of the shop in Glengormley.

The charity said removing the graffiti from the building will require “time and money” that would have instead been used for their work in the community.

In a social media post, the Northern Ireland Hospice wrote: “Unfortunately, our Hospice Shop in Glengormley was recently defaced.

“The damage will require both time and money to repair, resources that would be better spent supporting the vital care provided by our amazing nursing teams to communities across Belfast and beyond.

“As a local charity, we are facing challenges with rising costs, and we cannot afford the additional expense that this vandalism has caused. Every penny we receive is crucial for providing specialist care to local babies, children, and adults with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

“The people in the Glengormley area have generously supported us for many years, and we sincerely hope that this incident will not be repeated.

“Thank you for your ongoing support.”
