WELL-KNOWN sights in Lisburn, Moira, Dromara and Dromore have been captured by artist Gillian Lutton and now grace the pages of a new book 'My Lagan Love', which includes stories by Ian Hill. My Lagan Love takes the reader on a leisurely journey along the river from its source at Slieve Croob, past the neat farms around Dromara, Dromore and Donaghcloney, Moira and on through the commercial cities of Lisburn and Belfast before entering the sea at Belfast Lough.

Ian Hill, who can trace his ancestors back to the 16th century banks of the Lagan, shares with the reader his vast store of knowledge on all aspects of the Lagan while Gillian's wonderful paintings provide a visual feast which does this beautiful part of Northern Ireland proud. Bishops Bridge Dromore, Dromara Bridge, Island Arts Centre, Berwick Hall Moira, Main Street Moira, Kilwarlin Moravian Church, St Malachy's Church Hillsborough, Down

Royal Racecourse, Lisburn Railway Station, Castle Gardens, Friends' School, Union Bridge, Hilden House, Hilden Mill, Lambeg Bridge, Lychgate at Drumbeg Church and Lady Dixon Park are just some of the local sights captured by Gillian.

'My Lagan Love' is published by Cottage Publications and is available from all local bookshops or direct from the publishers priced 19.95.
