17 08 2012

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has called on the local community to use their experiences of these years Oul Lammas Fair to suggest how the event can be improved in future years.

 “The Fair which has taken place for several centuries and brings visitors from all over the world to Ballycastle, belongs to the local community and its future should be shaped by them. Many people have suggested the need for a programme of community events to extend the celebrations.”

The Council have a Lammas Fair Working Group of which Councillor Cunningham is a member “This year through the hard work of the Council’s Economic department we have secured traders from St Georges Market who will operate over the two days in a marquee at Ballycastle seafront, as well as that the marquee will host entertainment on the Sunday night in the form of comedian Kevin McAleer these are events which I know the community will respond positively to. “

 “It is important that the Council needs to continue to engage with the local community and encourage the promotion of the Fair in a way that commands local support.”
