Councillors have approved the appointment of an artist to create a £20,000 stained glass window at Coleraine Town Hall to mark the centenary of the creation of Northern Ireland.

Members of the Causeway Coast & Glens Leisure & Development Committee gave the seal of approval to Chris McClintock Stained Glass for the design, manufacture and installation of the ‘NI 100’ stained glass window.

During a site visit with the Honorable Irish Society, DUP Councillor Aaron Callan said: “They thought it was a fantastic project and were excited to get involved in it in some way.”

UUP Alderman Joan Baird, who also attended the visit, said: “I think it’s fantastic we have got the stained glass window concept up and running, albeit at very early stages and I look forward to the production of the design for that which I hope will encompass all of our borough.

"It will be a great addition to the town hall in Coleraine which is, I feel, the town hall for the whole borough.”

Members of the committee also approved the award amount of £89,000 for the successful applicants of the NI100 Small Grant Programme.
