ON Sunday, November 11, Beacons of Light were lit in Ballycastle, Ballymoney, Coleraine and Limavady signifying the light of peace that emerged from the darkness of war.

A similar ceremony will take place on Rathlin Island on Sunday 18th November.

The local community took part in this unique tribute, the Deputy Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Trevor Clarke said: “Our beacon lighting ceremonies on Armistice Day are part of the wider Battle's over tribute. “A working in partnership with the Royal British Legion, we are honoured to have participated in this historic international event as we recognise the contribution and sacrifice made by so many men and women,” he concluded.
