McGlinchey responds to Unionist statement about Dungiven project

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin councillor Sean McGlinchey has hit out at Ulster Unionist councillors who have claimed they are trying to best use ratepayers money.

Cllr. McGlinchey said “These representatives know fine rightly that not a penny of ratepayers money would have went into this development. The extra funding was all costed and accounted for out of the landfill community fund but now we are looking at losing millions in investment into Dungiven, what type of signal does that send out to other potential investors?”

“They also claim their decision was not motivated by sectarianism, then why did they approach us after the leisure and development committee meeting the previous week blatantly asking us to do a deal which would see them support project if we came to an arrangement with them on flags. An offer we rejected outright, we will not sell needs for equality.”

“I attended a packed public meeting in Dungiven on Wednesday night with people from across the community who are outraged at what is going on. We as a community will not lie down and just let this opportunity to be missed.”
