North Down MLA Alex Easton said, “I was messaged privately by a concerned voter in my area last night and I went to the North Down Sinn Fein page myself to find this disturbing picture.
Sinn Fein must explain why IRA pictures, which are clearly added to a picture alongside their Council candidate Kieran Maxwell was posted on their Facebook page? This is not in any way humorous particularly for the innocent victims who suffered at the hands of IRA terrorists.
Kieran Maxwell must also explain if he supports the posting of this picture and indeed the glorification of terrorism?
Last night’s social media post was in bad taste and wrong given that we are in 2019, when any form of promotion for terrorism should not be common place.
