Gary Mc Clean and Dylan Quinn outside the DSD offices in Derry

Gary Mc Clean from Gobnascale, Londonderry, is protesting against the Department of Social Development who funds the Waterside Neighbourhood Partnership regarding the handling of his recent job application, as Community Development Officer for Currynierin. The post has since been re-advertised, despite Gary’s assertion that he’s received correspondence to suggest that he was suitable, but not chosen due to his lack of alliance to any particular Northern Ireland political party, especially those of Sinn Fein and DUP. Dylan Quinn from the Currynierin Youth Group is also supporting Gary’s protest, as Gary is one of the youth leaders with the group, who feel he’s more than qualified in terms of experience for the role.
