Christmas lights were bought using a peace grant and remain the property of the Sinn Fein-dominated council. The council has refused to hand them over  to Castledawson because community representatives have not implemented a policy on the flying of flags in the area.
Council backed the application for Castledawson on the proviso there would be an agreed flags protocol in future. Basically that hasn’t happened.

Alone among EU nations and Christians the world over, the Protestant Coalition proclaims
Rather than come to an agreement with our neighbours we prefer tattered flags to Christmas lights!”
