Mountsandel – Get the story out there!

1 Mins read

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning Councillor William McCandless said “I wish to express my thanks to Rotary club, Hon. Irish Society P.S. And St. Malachys P.S. for their invitation to join with them Tue.26th for the workshops the children participated in at the Mountsandel forest area.

The children enjoyed the talks from archaeologists and actively participated in the workshops which gave the children a flavour of what life in the Mountsandel area would have been like in the Mesolithic period.

I am delighted that the Mountsandel site is being promoted among our schools, we have the earliest known settlement to man and we need to get that message out there.

We have 500,000 tourists who leave Belfast every year on tourist buses and bypass Coleraine to visit Londonderry, approximately 1.3 million tourists visit Giants Causeway and Carrick a Rede. These people are not coming into Coleraine.
We need a tourist attraction to draw people into our town.

The Mountsandel site could be the magnet to draw people into our area and with careful protection of the site, with a welcoming interpretive centre and reconstructions of the various historic eras that the mount has experienced over the period of time we could make it an interesting area for people to visit and have on their must see list when they come to this area.
