Background

Understanding Our Area – People and Places was a cross-community project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme. It set out to increase the understanding and expression of our culture and history, our people and places, through museum collections, historic sites and cultural heritage using interpretation, arts and multimedia to create a peace building legacy. The initiative is part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s PEACE IV Local Area Action Plan, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, which is providing £3.5 million for community projects across the borough.

Between 2017 and 2019, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services supported a range of community-led projects, along with a range of events, showcases and resources exploring the history of the Causeway area.

The History of Ballymoney RBL

The Royal British Legion collated a history of the Ballymoney branch through stories of its people and buildings which was published as a book, exploring how the Royal British Legion has supported ex-servicemen and their families locally.

Hardcopies of the book are free and can be picked up from the Royal British Legion, Ballymoney, from Ballymoney Museum, or by contacting Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services through this website.

A digital copy of the book may be downloaded from RESOURCES.
