Levelled by Easter thumbnailLinenhall Street in Ballymoney which is due to be demolished.

AFTER decades of public outcry Ballymoney's notorious Linenhall Street derelict site is at last being demolished.
Confirming the news, Principal Designer for the demolition Mr Ian Frizzell, told The Chronicle that, "everything is coming down and the site cleared for future development."
The move was immediately welcomed by local politicians as a first step towards the rejuvenation of the site, after local chemist, Mr Alan Mathewson bought the property back in June.
Speaking to The Chronicle, Mr Frizzell of Frizzell Safety Services, said: "Everything is coming down and the site cleared for future development which will hopefully be completed by Easter. This involves the complete removal of all buildings to ground level and the erection of a timber hoarding to the perimeter of the site."
The contractor is McCormick Contracts of Ballycastle and every building from No 6 Linenhall Street to 10 Charles Street is coming down, as well as the old cinema on High Street and the buildings that formed part of Christies builders yard.
