Derry rally will show revulsion at the killing of Andrew Allen

A rally will take place at the Top of the Hill in Derry this afternoon in protest at the murder of Andrew Allen.

The 24-year-old, father of two, originally from the Top of the Hill  was fatally wounded when shots were fired through the bedroom window of his home at Lisfannon outside in Buncrana on Thursday week last.

Dissident republicans have been blamed for his death.

Eamonn Mc Cann, one of the organisers of today's rally, says the event gives the community a chance to join with Andrew Allen's family and friends to show their revulsion at his killing and their defiance to those responsible.
