Moyle District is a Local Council in Northern Ireland. It is located in County Antrim, which is in the north east area. The Local Council holds a population of just over 17,000 people according to a 2011 census, which, after the Isles of Scilly is the lowest population out of all the principal local authority areas in the United Kingdom.
Along with 42 miles of coastline, the area has around 190 square miles of land, most of which is made up of rural land.
Due to its small population, a new council by the name of Dalriada was recommended to be made in 1991. It would consist of the Ballymoney Council and Moyle District Council, the two being merged to create Dalriada. Both councils strongle opposed this however, a public enquiry was held and eventually led to the plans being shelved, leaving all the counties preserved.
A world Heritage Site: the Giant’s Causeway, as well as Rathlin Island (which lies around 7 miles off Ballycastle) and the Glens of Antrim are the three most known features within Northern Ireland. All of which are located in Moyle District, making it a popular spot for tourists.
