REMEMBRANCE Services have taken place both on Rathlin and off-shore.

Sunday 17th November 2019 marked the annual service of Remembrance on Rathlin which is traditionally held the week after the mainland Northern Ireland events as it is organised by the Ballycastle Branch of the Royal British Legion who have their own service on Remembrance Sunday.

A service is held at St Thomas’ Church of Ireland on Rathlin before wreaths are laid in the Church’s Graveyard.

This is then followed by a service on board MV Spirit of Rathlin, at the HMS Drake site in Rathlin Bay. PICTURES KEVIN MCAULEY/MCAULEY MULTIMEDIA
