Each group will be assisted by Moyle District Council staff to put in place a programme of events to support those members of our communities, the Torchbearers, who have been chosen to run with the Olympic Flame.

The council wants to create a party atmosphere and run events for all age groups so that everyone can join in and savour the atmosphere.

You don’t have to be a member of a community organisation; anyone can become part of the four community task forces.
