Sinn Fein Republican youth condemn Unionists voting against Dungiven Sports Centre

1 Mins read

County Derry Sinn Féin Republican youth have condemn the actions of Unionist councillors on Causeway Coast and Glens council.

We as the largest and most active politcal youth grouping in the county feel the onus is on us to tell those elected representatives who voted against and indeed abstained from the vote on the Dungiven leisure centre how we feel about their actions.

What type of elected representative votes against millions of pound of investment into their community? This project would not have cost the local ratepayers a penny.

This applies especially to Councillor Douglas who was the only councillor from the Benbradagh ward who did not vote in favour. He lives only a few miles from Dungiven so what will he tell his friends and neighbours who could have made use of these facilities? He must come out and explain why he would fail to support a major investment on his doorstep.

We all have read the story of Dungiven native Ryan O’Connor who is confined to a wheelchair. Can those who voted against this project explain to him how having the Union flag flown across the borough is More important than his and many others sporting needs.

The facts are that the exsisting site is going to cost the ratepayer almost a million pound just to get to a usable standard. This is after those who opposed the project claimed they made their decision to save the ratepayers £300,000.

At a time when obesity and other related conditions are on the rise this oppurtunity to have state of the art facilities can not be missed out on
