4. Ballymoney book signing

“The Last Harp of Dunluce” is a love story set on the peaceful north Antrim coast at a time when life was anything but peaceful.

Author Ballymoney man David Dunlop paints a picture of the beautiful landscape, but at the same time, is not afraid to tell of the terrible conflict of the 1641 Rising and its effects on the people of the area.

The Battle of the Laney on Black Friday, February 11, 1642, the destruction of parts of the town including the old church opposite the present St Patrick’s and the burning of the village of Enagh Cross near Bendooragh all feature in the tale.

David will be present in ‘Old and New at No 5’ on Castle Street on Saturday (June 11) at 11am and in Blythswood at 1pm to sign copies and answer questions.

A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the novel will go to these local Ballymoney charities.

5. Community Choir at Cushendun

This Sunday (June 12) at 2pm, The Old Church Centre, Cushendun, are delighted to host the Antrim Community Choir.

They will be presenting a free concert for the public inspired by songs they have gathered during their project “Under the Radar”.

Come along to enjoy the singing and stay around to see their exhibition after the event between 3-4pm.
