Councillor slams 'awful' Oul Lammas Fair

An Antrim councillor has launched another extraordinary attack on Ballycastle's Oul Lammas Fair.

The fair, believed to be one of the oldest in Ireland, is held at the end of August and tens of thousands of people flock to the town to munch on the dulse seaweed and yellowman.

However, one councillor is no fan.

Independent representative Randal McDonnell, who lives 10 miles away from Ballycastle in Cushendun, has followed up his swipe at the festival last year, with: "The sooner it is shut the better. We should order all councillors to attend it to see how awful it is."
