The 2014 Broadisland Gathering in Ballycarry is to have a wartime theme to mark two notable military anniversaries.
The twenty-second Gathering will highlight the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the Second World War. The mobilsation order for the latter was signed by Ballycarry man General James Steele.
The World Wars will be the theme of a history bus tour around the area on Wednesday September 3, which will recount the stories of people from the area who served. Also included will be sites at Whitehead and Larne and a free refreshment afterwards in Millars at Main Street.
