It has been at the centre of controversy for several years but is still one of the most popular walks on the North Antrim Coast and recently, Moyle District Council placed two summer seats next to the public Car Park at Marconi’s Cottage, Carrickmore Road. Hundreds of walkers use the road on a weekly basis taking in the beautiful surroundings of the place where the Coast Road hugs the contour of the Straits of Moyle. In what many will view as Moyle District Council laying claim to the area for the local community and enthusiastic walkers, Independent Councillor Padraig Mc Shane proposed the installation of the summer seats and a waste paper basket.
On completion Councillor Mc Shane welcomed the new furnishings saying;
“The public love the area and it is especially popular with local walkers. Many had indicated the need to install the seats and I’m pleased the Council facilitated their wishes”.
