Mallusk residents who braved the cold winter weather to attend Monday night’s No-Arc21 ‘Final Push’ meeting were treated to some live music.

Following all the formalities and political posturing, the evening finished on high note - a rendition of campaign song ‘Flames’, written and performed by local singer-songwriter Scott Macaulay.

Despite the chilly conditions inside the Academy Club sports hall, the audience warmed to the Mallusk teenager, who penned the song in protest against arc21’s plan to build a massive waste incinerator at Hightown Quarry.

It was well received by local residents and political representatives, who seemed to be in total agreement with the sentiment of the song.
