Carrickfergus, County Antrim

Ahead of the Eleventh Night.

A towering bonfire is being built across the road from a petrol station.

The Eleventh Night pyre is under construction on a grass verge in Carrickfergus.

Nearby, on the opposite site of the road, is a petrol station forecourt and retail units which have been built in recent years….

There have been increased concerns about bonfires built near businesses and homes after houses were gutted last year in west Belfast. Several terraced homes at Hopewell Square were damaged last July due to embers from the nearby Eleventh Night bonfire.
