Police probe paint bomb attack on St Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Newtownabbey

DETECTIVES are probing a paint bomb attack on a Catholic church in Newtownabbey.

It is the latest in a series of attacks on St Mary’s Star of the Sea Church on the Shore Road.

Police said it happened at some point between 7 pm on Saturday and 8.30 am on Sunday. They have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them.

Parish priest Father Anthony Alexander said he felt “exasperated”.

“We’d just cleaned up after the last paint attack and the place was looking very well, and they’ve done it again – why I do not know,” he said.

“The church has been there for 150-odd years, and I just can’t work out what their problem is.”

In September, a petrol bomb and paint were thrown at the church.
