Councillor Oisin O'Connell wished to clarify his appreciation for the work of the Three Sisters volunteers, particularly in light of recent media reports focusing on the criticism of the campaign.
'I think we should thank the volunteers who took the time to promote it so well. I want it to be clear that we appreciate it,' he said.
Cathaoirleach Cllr Paddy Kavanagh agreed, adding that nobody should be 'overindulging' the negatives.
'There are more positives than negatives,' he said.
'To say that the people involved were devastated (with the result) is to put it lightly,' he said. 'They are to be commended for their work.'
'It was really sad for those involved on the day.'
