Larne (Northern Ireland) DAB transmitter
This transmitter has no current reported problems
The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Larne (Northern Ireland) transmitter.
UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

John Houston: Very very doubful. Inver is Gaelic for 'the land around the mouth of the river', so I guess that you're very low lying.
Digital UK predictor suggests only the Larne relay when a postcode on Inver Road is inputted.
There would appear not to be another trick that you may pull to get the full service which is reception from the UK mainland or Isle of Man.
All transmitters on IoM are Freeview Lite. Darvel's COM channels (those that you're trying to get) are co-channel (same frequencies) as Divis' COMs. Still, if you can pick up Darvel's COMs you might be in an area where you are sufficiently screened from Divis that it doesn't interfere. But...I really wouldn't like to be drawn on how likely this might be to work.
If it does, you could obviously combine the feeds from the aerials so you could watch NI regional TV plus the COMs from elsewhere.
If you do have a stab at Darvel, then it uses all Group A channels, so use only a Group A aerial as widebands are inferior for Group A channels.
