For anybody that is willing to share historical information on the Larne town area obtained from offical sources as books, PRONI or newspapers, or local knowledge. If need be I will start separate area forums

OLDERFLEET CASTLE
is on Curran Point. And it was near here that archaeologists discovered over 10,000 worked flints. Such was the distinctive nature of these flints and also the way the people of the area traded with those across the water in Scotland, that the term "Larnian" was coined to describe them.

Occasionally it is still possible to find flints on The Curran.
