Blank cheque for NI centenary events wasteful – Cllr Cara McShane

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin Councillor, Cara McShane, has hit out at Councillors for agreeing to give an unconfirmed amount of money, including the creation of a Project Co-ordinator post, to oversee and implement a wide programme of NI centenary events.

The Council, which has been embroiled in several financial crises, agreed to the proposals hours after it was found to have wrongfully donated £1500 to Ian Paisley Junior for a fundraising business dinner.

Cllr Cara McShane said:

“First and foremost, partition will not be celebrated by nationalist and republican ratepayers.

“Further to this, however, Causeway Coast and Glens Council again finds itself in a position where they have given the green light for a blank cheque on expenditure.

“It is very difficult to have confidence in this Council, which has been and continues to be in the media for allegations of financial mismanagement.

“Again, it is the ratepayers who will pay the price of ill-informed, biased and wreckless decision-making in this Council.”
