Four Council ‘wakes’ and a ‘wedding’

Ballymoney, Coleraine, Moyle and Limavady Councils are disappearing on 31st March 2015 with the Causeway Coast & Glens being born on 1st April.

To mark the event, a ‘wake’ is being organised in each of the four Councils in March to share and remember the stories of

the ‘old’ Council with a ‘wedding’ to celebrate the new union in April.

Breige Conway from the North Antrim Community Network who are organising the second ‘wake’ for Moyle Council on Thursday 19th March from 7.30 – 9.00 pm in Cushendall Sailing & Boat Club says: “There will be live music and refreshments at each ‘wake’ so come along and join us for the evening.“

Lyn Moffett from Ballymoney Community Resource Centre who are organising the last wake for Ballymoney Council on Wednesday 25th March from 7.30 – 9.00 pm in the Ballymoney Town Hall says “People are working very hard at the moment whether in the community and/or the Councils to get ready for the new Council. It is important that we also take time out to remember the stories of our relationship with a Council that is about to go forever.”

Further information on the ‘wedding’ event to be released.
