Glens Sinn Féin Councillor Colum Thompson has congratulated Glenariff Improvement Group on the recent launch of their book on Glenariff townland names and their new website.

It was standing room only in The Mariners Bar in Waterfoot recently for the launches and Councillor Thompson who attended the event said: “I would like to congratulate Glenariff Improvement Group on the launch of both their new book and their website.

“The book is a fitting accompaniment to their recently completed townland marker stones project. Both the book and the townland marker stones are essential for keeping alive the cultural heritage of Glenariff for both tourists and locals alike.

“Having a website is another significant development for the group. It will help to document the fantastic work the group do to the wider world, particularly Glenariff people living overseas.

“During my time in council it has always been a pleasure to work with Glenariff Improvement Group who continue to go from strength to strength. They are a credit to Glenariff and The Glens.”
