Newry & Armagh DUP MLA William Irwin said,
Deputy Chair of the Infrastructure Committee
“Mr O’Muilleoir retweeted the disgusting McElduff video where they made light of ten innocent people being murdered simply because of their religion. It was a hate filled and sectarian crime. People who lost loved ones were already living with deep scars. Further online mockery was rubbing salt in the wounds. Mr O’Muilleoir should hang his head in shame for retweeting the video.
Mairtin O’Muilleoir prides himself in being a ‘bright side of the road’ MLA but his mask slipped to show he was more at home in the gutters. Michelle O’Neill should have sacked the former Finance Minister. At least Barry McElduff had the self-awareness to resign. Mairtin O’Muilleoir instead hid from the media, took a social media training course and clung to office.
Today, my thoughts continue to be with the families of the Kingsmill massacre as they once again display great dignity and fortitude in the face of such wicked disrespect.”
