Ireland Report / Story
Previously having been given permission, the council with oversight of Sentry Hill in Carnmoney and Clotworthy House have accepted an amendment that permission be refused to allow County Antrim Paranormal Research Association (CAPRA) to investigate the two locations.

Alliance councillor Billy Webb proposed an amendment that permission be refused, he said,
"I think it is one thing to have a paranormal investigation in a public building, but it is quite another thing to have them in buildings that have previously been a private home which is the case with Sentry Hill and Clotworthy,"

"There may be relations to those who previously lived there still in our community.

"I think that should have been considered before granting permission.

"The council has been contacted with similar concerns. I propose an amendment that permission is refused."

The proposal was seconded by DUP councillor Matthew Magill, Mr. Webb had previously questioned the impact it would have in relation to usage of the buildings if "something is detected".

Sentry Hill, a Victorian farmhouse, built in 1835, and now a council property is associated with the McKinney family which first came from Scotland to Ireland in the 18th century.

It was occupied by Andrew McKinney in the 1780s. The property remained in the family until 1996.

Clotworthy House, a council arts centre and former stable block and coach house in Antrim Castle Gardens, was built in 1843 by the tenth Viscount Massereene.
