Local councillor John Smyth has praised organisers of the Giro d’Italia.

The DUP councillor said he joined hundreds of people on Saturday morning to watch the cycle race pass through the borough.

“We were treated to a cycling extravaganza which sadly passed all too quickly,” Cllr. Smyth said.

He added: “I would like to especially thank the grounds people in Antrim Borough Council who decorated our roundabouts quite remarkably and just shows what excellent staff council have.

“It is really good to see that people can take the inconvenience of having roads closed and can embrace a cycling experience which is good for everyone. I hope that through this experience our young people can see that there are opportunities and they can achieve greatness.

“Once again to all the organisers well done and I look forward to the next fantastic event.”
