Farmers help deliver Glens scheme thumbnailPaddy McSparron, a sheep and cattle farmer in Glendun, who was one of the first to get planting underway.

ONE of Northern Ireland's most iconic landscapes is in the limelight thanks to a five-year project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The scheme aims to conserve and enhance the natural and built heritage of the Glens of Antrim, with a boost to the area's tourism and the profitability of farms high on the list of anticipated outcomes.
The 'Heart of the Glens Landscape' partnership scheme, the brainchild of the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust, is currently focusing on landscape resilience. It's a joined-up approach with support from conservation charity the Woodland Trust and, at its core, has the backing of local farmers.
