Moygashel picture stark contrast to respect shown yesterday - Gildernew
Sinn Féin MLA Michelle Gildernew said a picture erected in Moygashel stands in stark contrast to the dignity and respect shown for Martin McGuinness yesterday.
The Fermanagh South Tyrone MLA said:
“This picture stands in direct contrast to the events yesterday where tens of thousands came from across Ireland and the globe to pay respects to a political leader in a dignified manner.
“No one did more for the peace process than Martin McGuinness.
“His outreach to everyone regardless of race, gender, class, religion or sexuality was an example to us all and he continually worked to build a better society based on respect, tolerance and equality.
“There is a family mourning the loss of their husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and indeed many mourning the loss of a friend.
“I condemn this vile behaviour in the strongest way possible. Actions like this cause concerns and problems for society."
