Stewart Dickson MLA: “I am opposed to any event that would seek to glorify terrorism, but I am particularly concerned that this event took place in a Council leisure centre.
“It is disgraceful that anybody would seek to commemorate the activities of any paramilitary organisation.
“Sinn Fein have serious questions to answer about the organisation of this event. It appears that they did not inform the Council of what this event would actually include. In Council papers, they indicated that it would be a community celebration event and include presentations to local people who have worked in the fields of sport, culture and development.”
