Mid and East Antrim Borough Mayor, Councillor Audrey Wales MBE is to host a welcome breakfast for a visiting American Football team.

The Mayor will meet the Danville Centre College American Football Team and formally welcome them to the Borough when she hosts the visitors to breakfast at Jubilee Hall, Carrickfergus Town Hall on Sunday May 28.

Cllr Wales said: “I will be delighted to welcome our USA visitors to the historic town of Carrickfergus, especially so given our ‘twinning’ arrangements with Danville.

“This began a decade ago with the successful Danville/Carrickfergus Sister Cities relationship being established and now carried on under Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.

“Mayors from the Carrickfergus legacy council and Mid and East Antrim Borough Council have already found a warm welcome in Danville.

Cllr Wales added that she had visited Danville in March of this year.
