Constituency Details
Bastion of the Paisley dynasty, this constituency is largely rural and located in the scenic north-eastern corner of Northern Ireland.

North Antrim takes in the whole of Ballymena, Ballymoney and Moyle district councils. It is also home to Rathlin Island, the most northern part of Northern Ireland.

In 2007, the DUP held three Assembly seats here, and the UUP, SDLP and Sinn Féin one each.

The new boundaries are likely to make a real difference here.

Ken Reid
An historic election with no Paisley in the ballot paper. The DUP has four candidates, the UUP two while the TUV is also fielding two, including party leader Jim Allister. The SDLP’s Declan O’Loan will have a battle to retain his seat due to boundary changes.
