Rename 'queen's highway' - Sinn Féin

This won't go down too well in the Unionist community! Sinn Féin have proposed renaming 'Queen Elizabeth' road in Enniskillen, along which a boulevard is currently being constructed.

The idea was proposed by Brian McCaffrey, the leader of the Sinn Féin grouping in the Townhall, at an earlier committee meeting, but only got a short mention at Monday's Council Meeting.

Unsurprisingly, unionists are against the idea.

"There are alot of streets that would be nationalist but at the same time, I wouldn't like to see them taken away. I would not like to think our heritage would be tampered with whatsoever. That's the way I would feel about it," said DUP Councillor Bert Johnson.

I must say I agree with the Unionists on this one. Is this what we in the Republic have to look forward to if Sinn Féin gain a greater foothold down here? Traditions being tampered with? Would Henry Street in Dublin be in for a name change too?

Let's not forget this bit of news from a few months back where Sinn Féin's Brian Crowe called for the removal of 1,000 pre-1922 post boxes which, although painted green, still carried the Royal crown and insignia!

Come on Sinn Féin! Stop rewriting the past and instead plan for the future!
