Surely this report is false, as we are living in peace (if you turn a blind eye to the rioting, kneecappings and bombs)

I find it an absolute disgrace that this viable bomb has not had any more time on the news than a new hotel being built in Newry. These people and us of the greater Lisburn area deserve to know what is going on you really must look at your priorities when planning your news programme I am shocked and totally disheartened by this!

Young Niamh has summed this up beautifully. Shame on those of you who continue this madness. Niamh well done in praising the work of the police officers who have to deal with this mess, I hope you are home and feeling safe.

Don understand why anyone should be targeted. Violence is not the answer!
