A new committee is to be set up in Larne to help co-ordinate Ulster Scots activity in the borough.

Larne Council has been involved in discussions with the Ulster Scots Agency to try and establish how best its heritage and culture could be supported locally.

As a result of these talks, £20,000 has been released to Ballycarry Community Association to develop infrastructure such as interpretative panels, signage and other projects.

At the latest meeting of Larne Council’s development committee, chief executive Geraldine McGahey told elected members it was anticipated the new committee would be set up in the very near future.

She added that work was continuing to try and bring all Ulster Scots groups within the borough together to move forward.
