North Antrim DUP MLA Mervyn Storey has condemned the removal of Union Flags from two Orange Halls in his Constituency.
Commenting Mr Storey said,
As a mark of respect at the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, flags were erected at Garryduff Ind Orange Hall and Dunloy Orange, sadly both were removed.
This was a disgraceful and disrespectful act.
As today we joined with with our Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and our nation to express our sympathy as His Royal Highness The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh was being buried there were those sadly who couldn’t even allow that to happen without displaying their sectarian hatred.
