Letterkenny Islamic Association Condemns London Attacks

The incidents in London last night have left us shocked, disgusted, heartbroken and utterly devastated.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their loved ones.

The people who carry out these attacks have nothing to do with Islam. Their actions are completely opposed to the principles of Islam. They follow a twisted ideology a million miles away from the peaceful religion taught and practised by the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims who continue to live peacefully and harmoniously with those around them.

Ramadan Mubarak – from Saturday insha Allah



The Letterkenny Islamic Association would like to wish all Muslim brothers and sisters in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal and all around the world a blessed month of Ramadan which will insha Allah start on Saturday the 27th of May.  May Allah accept the best deeds from us and from you.  Ameen.
