Northern Ireland as from 1 April 2015. It corresponds to two previous local government districts, the Borough of Antrim (comprising the town of Antrim and the surrounding area) and the Borough of Newtownabbey. The main town is Antrim. Other towns include Randalstown.
In 2014 a controversy arose in Newtownabbey, when a local Christian-owned bakery, Ashers Baking Company, refused to supply a cake featuring the Sesame Street puppets, Bert and Ernie, with a slogan supporting same-sex marriage.
