Craigyhill bonfire: pictures as massive tower is lit ahead of the Twelfth

The lighting of the Craigyhill bonfire in Larne brought together people of all ages and from far and wide.

With bonfire builders firmly believing that they had constructed the biggest in Northern Ireland this year, the lighting was the moment everyone was waiting for.

Many months of fundraising, planning and constucting had gone into creating the massive structure, which dominated the Larne skyline.
