Causeway facility up for award again

By David Gordon

The current Causeway visitor centre - denounced in the Assembly by the DUP - has been shortlisted for a tourism award.



The facility, run by Moyle Council, has again been nominated for the title of Visitor Attraction of the Year by readers of Northern Ireland Travel News.

In a statement, the council said: "The visitor centre at the Causeway was successful in winning this prestigious award last year against stiff competition from the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, the Ulster American Folk Park and the Marble Arch Caves.

"Moyle District Council is delighted to learn that their visitor centre is once again amongst the final four nominations for this year's award."

The winner is due to be announced at a gala dinner hosted by TV's Angela Rippon on October 19 in the Slieve Donard Hotel.

DUP MLA Ian Paisley Jnr hit out at the current Causeway visitor buildings during an Assembly debate last month, describing them as "a lot of horrible buildings and Portakabins".
