Motion: McCreesh Park


That this Assembly expresses its concern at the decision by Newry and Mourne District Council to approve again the naming of the Patrick Street Play Park in Newry after convicted IRA terrorist Raymond McCreesh; notes that the vote was taken prior to the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland making a final formal ruling on the matter; further notes the seemingly lethargic approach of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland in pursuing this case; and calls on the Minister of the Environment to respond to the vote in light of the requirement for councillors to act in a way that promotes good relations by providing a positive example for the wider community to follow and, crucially, acting in the interest of the whole community.

Mr N McCausland
