Ballycastle Community Development Group along with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council are asking for the public’s help to bring the history of the Ould Lammas Fair to life.

Council’s Events Team and Museum Services has teamed up with the community group to delve into the past and build a collection of information and experiences aimed at revitalizing the famous fair’s heritage.

While the event won’t be happening this year due to the on-going pandemic, it has been part of the fabric of Ballycastle for over 400 years ago, bringing people together and holding a very special place in the culture of the area.

Those behind the initiative hope that the public will share their stories and experiences, along with images, old newspaper articles and mementos collected through the years to develop an archive of the Fair.

So whether you have you been busy clearing out the attic or garage and have stumbled across some photographs, or just have a story about treating your Mary Ann to some dulse and yellowman, the group would love you to share them as they begin to build up this important heritage resource.

For further information or to send in your material visit www.ballycastleconnect.org/ould-lammas-fair.
