Glasgow police say graffiti incident at Catholic school is a ‘hate crime’

Police said the graffiti was of a sectarian nature

Police are treating graffiti sprayed on a wall at a Catholic school in Glasgow as a hate crime.

St Aloysius’s College is Scotland’s only private Jesuit school, taking boys and girls aged three to 18.

The graffiti, found on Sunday August 21, read “The famine’s over! It’s time to go home.”

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “The incident is being treated as a hate crime and enquiries are ongoing. It is thought to be of a sectarian nature.”

Many thousands of Irish Catholics came to Glasgow to escape the “great famine” in Ireland in 1845-1852. Glasgow City Council is planning a memorial to the victims of the famine, those who went to Glasgow and those who fled to the Scottish Highlands.

A spokesperson for the college said: “Graffiti was discovered on the Dalhousie Street side of the main building on the morning of Monday, August 22, following the weekend.

“The matter was reported to police and inquiries are ongoing. The graffiti has now been removed.”
