It gives me great
pleasure, as chairperson of Moyle District Council,
to introduce our online version of the Moyle Economic
Profile and Trade directory.
The Moyle district has been blessed
with one of the most dramatic coastlines on the Island
of Ireland, which has, for generations, attracted
and inspired visitors from all over the world. Sites
of interest such as the breathtaking Carrick-a-Rede
Rope Bridge, the beautiful and tranquil Glens of Antrim
and the world famous Giants Causeway, have guaranteed
the district’s position as one of Northern Ireland’s
most significant tourist destinations.
The story, however, does not end
there. The past two decades have witnessed a steady
rise in the district’s population. Our growing
population, and the increasing popularity of the district
as a tourist destination, has contributed to the development
of a more dynamic commercial environment, as local
businesses have responded to new opportunities.
The Moyle Economic Profile and Trade
Directory is a celebration of the diversity and quality
of the business and economic life of our district.
Its purpose is to act as a comprehensive information
resource for existing businesses and potential investors
who are keen to learn more about Moyle and the opportunities
it can offer.
For ease of use, this site has been
divided into two key sections. Section One provides
a socio-economic profile of Moyle, which presents
relevant statistical data on the district in a precise,
interesting and informative manner. Section Two, the
business directory itself, provides a comprehensive
current listing of over five hundred businesses operating
in the district, across all key industrial and consumer
sectors, and categorised by sector. Also included,
are relevant contact details for government organisations,
utility companies and the community and voluntary
sectors on both a local and regional level. A facility
also exists on the site for local firms, who may not
already be listed, to include their business details.
I hope you will
find this site to be both helpful and interesting
and that it becomes an invaluable information resource
that you return to time after time.
Chairperson 2004, Moyle District Council.
