Police are investigating after ‘Taigs Out’ graffiti was sprayed on a house in north Antrim just days after its new occupier moved in.

It is the second time in two months the home has been targeted.

The family who had been living in the property previously fled following a sectarian arson attack in October.

The graffiti was painted on the house on Tuesday night or yesterday (Wednesday) morning.

The incident happened at Islandarragh Road in the Capecastle district, between Ballycastle and Armoy.

A PSNI spokeswoman said that officers were investigating an incident of criminal damage to a property.

The spokeswoman urged anyone with any information to come forward.

“It was reported that some time overnight graffiti was sprayed on the wall of a house in the area. Police are appealing for information,” she said.
