This week’s Larne Times features comprehensive reporting and photo coverage of events commemorating the 1914 Ulster Volunteer Force gunrunning in Larne.

We have a Picture Special on the Operation Lion pageant which attracted thousands of visitors to the town on Saturday.

We also have a two-page Special on the Larne District LOL No 1 commemoration parade.

Larne man David McNeill tells readers how his father John took part in the gunrunning operation, aged just 16, and local historian and author Dr David Hume offers his analysis of the gunrunning as a history-changing event.

It’s only in the Larne Times. and it’s in shops now!
