“The only thing that should be at the forefront of Peoples’ minds is the protection of the fantastic community relations we enjoy in Moyle. People have a right to protest in a dignified and peaceful manner and at all times those rights must be protected – no matter how unpalatable the subject.
“Important issues will be discussed tomorrow evening and it is to these we must turn our attention. Leisure and Tourism, Health and Housing alongside the monthly reports dealing with the opportunities on the Reform of Local Government must remain our primary focus while protests can be relegated to footnotes on a busy Monday evening.
“I can assure the people of Moyle that we will not be flying any flags from public buildings given the wishes of the majority of people in the District. Those intent on protesting make up only a extremely tiny minority of people in Moyle.”
