The West Tyrone MLA said

“Sinn Fein need to spell out whether they are calling for the removal of IRA memorials, which not only glorify sectarian murder, but many of which were sited without any approval or planning permission. Will they support the removal of the IRA memorial in Castlederg, a town which saw 29 people murdered. Unless they’re prepared to face up to these permanent monuments to sectarian hatred then people will see Sinn Fein’s words as entirely hollow.”
