Well done, Dessie Ward

I see Dessie Ward, Sinn Féin councillor in Rathfriland, has condemned quite roundly the daubing of pro-Republican graffiti on road signs and property in the area: "This graffiti may, or may not, be in response to anti-republican graffiti that appeared in the town over the Twelfth of July period. Either way it is wrong."
So often in the past we've heard qualified condemnations only pointing the finger at the causes without denouncing the crimes themselves. We need more of this kind of clarity and bridge-building.
