A plaque has been unveiled in Islandmagee, County Antrim to commemorate the last witch trial on the island of Ireland.

The trial took place at Carrickfergus courthouse in 1711 when eight women and a man were found guilty of performing witchcraft against a young woman.

Mary Dunbar had accused them of bewitching and tormenting her.

Author Martina Devlin had campaigned for the plaque since 2014 to remember the "lingering injustice".
