Causeway Coast and Glens Council has split along Unionist / Republican lines over signage for Limavady.

The new welcome signage for Limavady (pictured above) which, having passed through sub committee and committee level, came to full council and suddenly became a contentious issue because of the use of the title Londonderry Air.

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community, Cllr Holmes said: “It’s always the little things that cause the most problems in council.”

“Whilst the music score The Londonderry Air was collected by Jane Ross of Limavady, the famous lyrics of Danny Boy were written by English Lawyer FE Weatherly in 1910 and set to the music in 1913.

“Limavady is the home of the Londonderry Air and it is sad that yet another attempt is being made to airbrush the name of Londonderry from history.

“Instead of welcoming signs that respected our two traditions and history, Sinn Fein openly talked of signs being vandalised – obviously due to the offensive terminology being used!

“It seems that Sinn Fein’s idea of a shared future is all one way.”
