Check out this amazing drone footage which shows the sheer scale of this year’s Eleventh Night bonfire in Ballymacash, Lisburn.

The footage of the bonfire - a massive pyre constructed using thousands of wooden pallets - was posted on YouTube and was shared on Facebook by the Ballymacash Cultural Awareness Project.

The estate’s July 11 celebrations include a community fun day, Lambeg drummers, pipers and other live music in the lead up to the lighting of the bonfire.
