It is concerning to the greater number of residents of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and beyond that he is glorifying terrorist criminals on social media platforms. 

In doing so he is causing immense hurt to the victims of those whom he is eulogising. His actions are detrimental to the office of mayor and damaging to the reputation of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.”
