A man has been arrested after graffiti was sprayed on a building in Belmore Street, Enniskillen.
The letters IRA were painted on a wall of the Clinton Centre, which was built on the site of a republican bomb attack in the County Fermanagh town.
Eleven people who had gathered for a remembrance event were killed in the IRA blast in 1987 and dozens were injured.
A 12th victim died 13 years later, having never woken from a coma.
