Motion: Ulster Fleadh Dromore

Council Meeting - 6th September 2022

Fermanagh Omagh District Council condemns the IRA chanting that was captured on video at a premises in Dromore, Co. Tyrone whilst the Ulster Fleadh was taking place.

Welcomes the statement from the Executive Committee of the Ulster Fleadh, including the  promise to take action against any member involved in "this chant or any other sectarian activity" and echoes their words that this sort of incident "does nothing to build trust and relations across the community."

Furthermore, FODC reiterates that there never was, and never will be any justification for the activity of paramilitary organisations or their glorification.


Proposed by: Councillor Robinson, seconded by Councillor Buchanan and supported by Councillors Elliott, Thompson and Stevenson.
