U-turn over cultural centre renaming was common sense – Chivers

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin councillor Brenda Chivers has welcomed the decision by unionist councillors to do a u turn on the name of the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre.

Cllr. Chivers said “I am glad Councillor Callan and the others who backed his proposal have responded to the outpouring of disbelief and anger from the local population who cannot understand the motives behind the attempted name change.”

“A quick look at social media shows the strength of feeling about this and a petition has over 1000 signatures calling for this proposal to be withdrawn.”

“There were many issues with this proposal such as the cost of rebranding and that very few people in the town actually know this man. Many people also seen it as an attempt to eradicate the Irish translation of the name, Ionad Ealaíon agus Cultúir Ghleann na Ró, which is very petty.”

She added “I am however very wary that Councillor Callan has not ruled out returning to this issue in the future. If he does he will be met with the same level of opposition and critiscism.”
