A Sinn Féin councillor has offered to help clean up a British war memorial which was daubed with republican slogans at the weekend.
Sinn Féin's Paul Butler criticised vandals who daubed republican graffiti was on a war memorial in the Co Antrim village of Glenavy.
The Lisburn councillor said he was now offering to help the British Legion have the memorial cleaned.
"Whatever the reason was for this attack it was totally wrong," he said.
"I am calling on those who are engaged in this type of activity to stop and reflect on how disrespectful and hurtful their actions are to the memory of those who gave their lives in both world wars.
"Those who carried out this attack need to realise that members of both communities died in these wars. In fact members of families with republican connections died and fought in both wars."
Mr Butler said he was concerned at a growing number of incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Glenavy area recently.
A British Legion spokesman said that it was a non-political organisation and welcomed support from all sections of the community.
"War memorials are in memory of everyone on this island who died in either of the world wars," he said. "The upkeep of memorials is taken care of by district councils but we welcome support from anyone who has the best interests of the war dead."
