A Northern Ireland centenarian has received a special gift to mark her landmark day.

Isobel Costine is the latest recipient of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s centenary civic gift.

She received the bespoke coin from the Mayor, Richard Holmes, on her 100 birthday yesterday at Brookhill House in Coleraine, where staff had arranged an outdoor celebration.

Isobel was also presented with flowers and balloons to mark the big day.

The presentation is part of the council’s NI 100 programme of events, which will take place throughout 2021 to commemorate Northern Ireland’s 100th anniversary.

Offering his congratulations to Isobel, the Mayor said: “Reaching the age of 100 is a very special occasion, especially during this year when we also mark the centenary of Northern Ireland.

“I would like to thank Isobel and everyone at Brookhill House for their very warm welcome, and as Mayor it was a huge privilege for me to be a part of her birthday celebrations as we recognise our oldest residents in this way.”
