Easter Rising to be marked by Council?

1 Mins read

A motion that steps be taken to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in 2016 was brought forward at Tuesday night’s full council meeting.

Ballymoney Sinn Fein Councillor Philip McGuigan proposed the motion and it was seconded by Councillor Kieran Mulholland.

The proposal will now be sent to the Council’s Corporate Policy & Resources Committee for discussion and approval.

The motion stated: “That Causeway Coast and Glens Borough council takes steps to remember the centenary of the Easter Rising and associated events in 2016, and assists in the facilitation, co-ordination and support of associated community-led events.  

That Council formulates a working group comprising members, relevant officers, and other associated community interests across the Borough.  The terms of reference of the working group will be to remember, through appropriately dignified and inclusive means, the centenary of the Easter Rising and associated events across the Borough; and that a budget be decided by this Council after the initial investigations and meeting of the working group to discuss possible events and initiatives.  

It is imperative this Council remembers respectfully  this pivotal historical  event and assists other organisations within the Borough to do likewise”
