Randalstown Cultural Awareness Association launched their '400 Years' project on Thursday.

The project will take a step back in time looking at Irish history and a variety of historical events from 1613 to the present day.

Some of the participants in the project are made up from members of the youth forum, Randalstown Sons of Ulster Flute Band and the local community.

A spokesperson for RCAA said: “We would encourage everyone to attend and learn a little bit of history for a better understanding of what has brought us to where we are today.”

The project has been funded by the Big Lottery and facilitated by Martin Snodden of Northern Spring.

The next events in the 400 Years project will take place on Thursday, March 6, and March 20, both at 7pm in the SACN offices.
