Yellow is not considered a traditional Christmas colour – but it’s taking prominence in Ballycastle this year.

That’s because the town’s Christmas tree has been turned into a Tree of Remembrance by the local Rotary Club.

It is the third year of the initiative.

The festive centrepiece is being adorned with yellow ribbons – all of which will feature messages of remembrance written by members of the public.

The messages and ribbons are a way of remembering for a variety of different reasons. This includes those who have passed away, as well as those living away from home, and family or friends who are ill or in hospital.

Christmas is a time for remembering loved ones who are not with us this year. There is no charge but voluntary donations are welcome and you can write a wish or a message and pin it on the tree.

This year Good Morning Ballycastle will benefit from donations made.

The ribbons will be available at the Diamond until Dec 24th.
