County Antrim – Contae Aontroma

Representing County Antrim is award winning journalist and broadcaster Andrea Catherwood. She worked for many years on ITV national news and is currently a BBC Radio 4 presenter.

You can listen here to Andrea’s BBC Radio 4 programme: Northern Ireland – Where Next? You can also read more about Andrea’s work on her website here.

In her video, Andrea remembers childhood family picnics and ‘sandy sandwiches’ on County Antrim’s stunning beaches. A favourite memory is the journey home at night from Aldergrove airport as the M2 snakes around Cavehill and the lights of Belfast city suddenly come into view. 

She looks forward to the end of lockdown when family and friends will be reunited on both sides of the Irish Sea.
