Popular Dark Hedges must be protected for the future

Editor's Viewpoint

The hugely successful TV show Game Of Thrones, which has a massive following worldwide, has brought welcome publicity to our Dark Hedges site near Stranocum, Co Antrim.

The area is featured strongly in the series.

Sadly, however, the large number of visitors who want to see the landmark have created traffic chaos. The site may now be endangered by its own popularity.

It is imperative the authorities work with the local community to ensure the site is protected.

The Dark Hedges are like the goose that lays the golden egg, and must be allowed to maintain their unique character.
