'Dual signage is fair, inclusive and agreed' - Cllr McNamee
Dual language signage is fair, inclusive and an agreed Council policy in Mid-Ulster, Sinn Féin has said.
Commenting today Cllr John McNamee said:
“I welcome the rolling out of the dual language street scheme and would encourage all our residents who want to have their street names in Irish and English to get in contact with us to have it facilitated.
“This was a policy brought forward due to a demand from those who live and pay rates within the council area.
“Opposition to this scheme by the DUP is both is ludicrous and short sighted.
“How can using both English and Irish possibly be described as ‘non-inclusive’. The dual language street sign process is only initiated when requested.
"What this appears to be is yet another example of stubborn opposition to anything that reflects the Irish identity.
“Sinn Féin have always worked with all parties in Mid Ulster, and will continue to do so. The development of the street name scheme was an inclusive process, with all parties able to attend and contribute.”
