Loyalists target Sinn Féin representative

Sinn Féin Assembly member Dara O'Hagan is being actively targeted by loyalists.

The Upper Bann Assembly member was contacted by the RUC on Wednesday afternoon, 5 April, and told she was being targeted. The RUC, however, refused to give O'Hagan any further information.

Disclosing that she has been twice blocked from admission to the Key Persons Protection Scheme, O'Hagan accused the RUC of ``denying her entry to the scheme.

The worry for nationalists in the North Armagh area is that loyalists are once again, ``upping the ante in the run up to Drumcree'', she told An Phoblacht.
