A fish factory in Glenarm is seriously damaged in a suspected arson in 2020

Almost two years ago, a suspicious fire damaged the old fish factory in Glenarm, a prime development site which Northern Ireland’s most dysfunctional council had bought a year earlier and in which Prince Charles had taken a special interest.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s chief executive, Anne Donaghy, asked councillors to approve the demolition of the building on the basis that it was dangerous and that the council was working with its insurers on the issue.
