Mayor Councillor Mark Brooks has paid tribute to Alderman Menagh:

“Jimmy was a deeply committed councillor who was a passionate advocate for our local community and especially for the town of Newtownards, which he represented on Council and deeply loved. He will be dearly missed by all his council colleagues and staff as well as the residents and many local causes he represented. We will hear much about his contributions over the coming days. My thoughts and deepest condolences are with his partner Nichola and his family circle.”
