Take a look back at the good old days with our selection of photographs from the paper’s archive.

More every week in the Larne, Carrick and Newtownabbey Times.

If you have any old photographs that you would like to share with our readers, we would love to hear from you.

The fifth game of Stena Line’s Giants Challenge for secondary schools was held at the Belfast Giants match against the Cardiff Devils at the Odyssey. The game was between Larne Grammar School and Lagan College, Belfast. Pictured at the Odyssey are (front) l-r: Stuart McIlwaine from Larne Grammar School, Richard Baillie from Stena Line, and Jack Morrow from Lagan College.

Do you have photographs from school? Maybe a sports team you played on? Or a special event that was a special memory?

We would love to see them. Send any old photographs, together with any details you have about the photo, to [email protected] and we will use as many as we can in the paper.

*Note: Some pictures may have been cropped for web publication purposes.
