Northern Ireland's Armed Forces Day celebrations centre on Carrickfergus, with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council hosting a spectacular event.

Every year the event is held in the United Kingdom to celebrate the service of personnel in the British Armed forces both past and present. Following tradition, the flag was hoisted at a civic ceremony by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Co Antrim, David McCorkell. Mid and East Antrim Mayor, Councillor William McCaughey, was also there along with representatives of the Armed Forces.

Carrick town centre hosted a socially distanced afternoon of activities and entertainment including a display from the RAF Red Arrows.We would like to thank Mid & East Antrim Borough Council for hosting such a fantastic event and making the Armed Forces feel so welcome in their Borough.
