First Minister gets preview of war exhibit

By Rebecca Black

First Minister Arlene Foster has visited a new war museum in Co Antrim which houses one of the largest collections of military artefacts in the UK and Ireland.

The War Years Remembered Museum in Ballyclare is run by a local charity which has amassed a unique range which covers pivotal moments in history, including the First and Second World Wars.

The official opening will take place on Saturday at Dennison Industrial Estate in Ballyclare, presided over by the Lord-Lieutenant for Co Antrim Joan Christie.

However, Mrs Foster received a special preview of the display and was guided around the exhibits by David McCallion.

Mr McCallion is the curator of the museum, which has built up the vast collection over the last 40 years.

Further information about the museum can be found at and @waryears.
