BALLYCLARE Chamber of Trade named its new President at this week’s AGM.

Mortgage advisor Darren Black succeeded Woodsides owner Niall McConkey as President for the incoming year at Tuesday night’s meeting (April 12).

The 31-year-old father of two was born and raised in the town and runs the Mortgage Shop on Main Street.

Darren told the Times he would be working hard to build on the success of the Chamber during his time in the top post.

He said: “A strong Chamber is vital to the town. There are lots of long-standing issues that we will continue to work on, but there are things that we can do in the short term that will benefit the town.”
