The swastika insignias were found scrawled on the side of a building close to the City Walls in the vicinity of Bank Place on Wednesday.

Members of the Martin McGuinness Cumann were alerted and removed the offensive graffiti.

Councillor Logue said: “I am shocked and appalled that neo-Nazi graffiti has been painted alongside sectarian slogans on a wall in Derry city centre.

Members of the Martin McGuinness Cumann get ready to paint out the offensive graffiti.

“After being made aware of the graffiti, activists from the local Martin McGuinness Cumann painted over it and restored the wall.”

Colr. Logue added: “Derry is a city for everyone; it’s diverse, inclusive and multicultural with a proud history of standing up for rights and opposing racism.

“Sectarian, neo-Nazi and fascist slogans and symbols will not be tolerated.

“Anyone with information on this graffiti should bring it forward to the Police.”
