Peace IV Partnership & Programme Workshops

27 July 2016

The Peace IV Programme, funded by the Special EU Programmes Body, is a unique initiative of the European Union which has been designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland.  To date, there has been extensive engagement across the Borough to establish key priorities that the programme could address.

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council would now like to offer you the opportunity to have your input into the project design process for programme delivery across the Borough.  You can do this by attending the workshops taking place in Antrim Civic Centre and Mossley Mill: -
