A £1m refurbishment of the 300-year-old building that houses Ballycastle museum can not proceed until emergency structural repairs are made.

In 2019 councillors agreed to restore the Grade 3 listed building in a bid to preserve local heritage and regenerate the Castle Street area of town.

Plans include a two story extension, disabled friendly toilets, a lift and additional storage rooms.

However, because of the Covid pandemic, the appointed contractor was unable to move onsite until January 2021.
