An image depicting how the harbour looked during filming plus a narrative of the filming that went on in the location would be included. In the show, Ballintoy Harbour featured as Pyke Harbour in 2011. It is set to feature again in 2012.
Councillor Padraig Mc Shane has welcomed the idea stating;
“The HBO series Game of Thrones has delivered several direct benefits to Ballintoy including funding for community projects. But the real benefits are beginning to manifest themselves in the tourism sector with visitors travelling from all over the globe to view the natural surroundings of the programme’s setting.
“A sign to mark where filming took place will of course be a welcome addition and a point of interest to those visitors who are unaware of the blockbuster series set location. We wish the series and HBO well and thank them for their selection of Ballintoy among several spectacular locations in Moyle.
Moyle District Council will decide if they are to accept the offer this week.
