Attempts to rename Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre criticised by Sinn Féin

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin group leader on Causeway Coast and Glens council, Dermot Nicholl, has criticised a motion from the UUP to change the name of the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural centre.

Cllr. Nicholl said “It beggars belief that the UUP and other unionists think this is a usefull way to spend council time and money. It is again an attempt to trample over the Nationalist people throughout the borough.”

“The centre is doing perfectly well at the moment under its current name and everyone knows it. Any attempt to rename could be detrimental and cause confusion to tourists and locals alike. Anybody who has spoken to me about this cannot understand the motivation behind this and whether it is time well spent.”

Sinn Féin assembly candidate for East Derry, Caoimhe Archibald, added “This would simply be a costly rebranding exercise and the money which would be needed to launch this new name could be used to further promote the centre and other tourist attractions in the area which are in abundance.”
