Who is Cecil Cousley?

Cecil Cousley is a politician in Northern Ireland.

Cousley is a farmer living near Ballymoney, and is an elder at Drumreagh Presbyterian Church.

Cousley was elected to Ballymoney Borough Council in 1981 for the Democratic Unionist Party. He was also elected to the Northern Ireland Assembly, 1982 in North Antrim.

Cousley has held his council seat at each election since 1981, regularly placing top in the poll. He has served as Mayor of Ballymoney in 1988 - 89, 94 - 95 and 2004 - 05, and as Deputy Mayor in 1991 - 92, 2002–03 and 2006 - 07.

In 2007, several sheep were killed on his land, leading to speculation that the Beast of Ballybogey, a phantom cat, was active; the Police Service of Northern Ireland discounted this theory.
