Drivers and Cyclists all need to share the road

20 07 2014

We all share the road – drivers and cyclists alike. So we all need to respect each other’s journey.

Drivers need to take extra care to look out for cyclists, one of the most vulnerable groups of road users, and to anticipate that they may make unexpected manoeuvres.

Cyclists need to take responsibility for their own safety by making other road users aware they are there and by giving plenty of warning of their intended actions.

Don’t forget we all have an equal right to use the road. Be careful and considerate towards other road users by being understanding, patient, staying calm, allowing people plenty of room – and particularly for drivers and cyclists – making eye contact when it’s possible and being courteous to one another





Cunningham condemns attack on Ballycastle GAA Club

McQGAA graffiti

SDLP Ballycastle Councillor Dónal Cunningham has condemned those responsible for daubing sectarian graffiti on the wall of the local GAA grounds and clubhouse as “despicable”.

The attack on McQuillan GAC comes just two nights after a similar attack on the local Orange Hall, which Cllr Cunningham also condemned.

Cllr Cunningham said: “The use of the same colour and slogans as used on the Orange Hall two nights previous might have been for some warped purpose, but  nothing can detract from the fact that people need to be respectful of other people’s views, beliefs, culture and property.

“Whoever is behind this attack should be ashamed of themselves. Spraying disgusting slogans on the walls of an Orange Hall or GAA Club will not achieve any objective. It is despicable and these stupid incidents must not be allowed to damage the good community relations in the area.

“No one in Ballycastle wants to be associated with these types of juvenile and unacceptable actions.”

SDLP Ballycastle Councillor Dónal Cunningham has condemned those responsible for daubing sectarian graffiti on the wall of the local Orange hall on the eleventh night as “juvenile and unacceptable”.

Cllr Cunningham said: “People need to be respectful of other people’s views, beliefs, culture and property. Whoever is behind this attack should be ashamed of themselves. Spraying disgusting slogans on the wall of an Orange hall will not achieve any objective. This stupid incident must not be allowed to damage the good community relations in the area.”

“No one in Ballycastle wants to be associated with this type of juvenile and unacceptable action.”

Causeway Coast & Glens Outdoor Recreation Action Plan

6 07 2014
 OR2
Outdoor Recreation NI is currently working on an Outdoor Recreation Action Plan (ORAP) for the Causeway Coast & Glens area.  The Plan is the third and final study to be completed as part of a suite commissioned by Sport NI.  Previous Plans have been completed for the Sperrins and Mournes area. The aim of the Plan is to provide an audit of the current provision of 30 different outdoor recreation activities, identify gaps in provision and opportunities for future development/enhancement and produce an Action Plan which recommends priorities for development.
Three public consultations events have been organised, two of which took place at the start of the week with the last scheduled for Mon 7th July at Moyle Council offices in Ballycastle at 7pm. 
Upon completion a report and action plan will be published and presented to the Causeway Coast & Glens Outdoor Recreation Forum.  It is anticipated that the Plan will strengthen the support for future funding and development projects
