Relocation of Portrush Fireworks Display to be discussed at Council tonight

1 Mins read

Ulster Unionist Councillor, Alderman Norman Hillis will be tabling a notice of motion at tonight’s Council meeting asking why the Fireworks Display which marks the end of the annual Portrush Airshow has been moved to Portstewart.

Commenting on the matter, Alderman Hillis said : “I am all in favour of spreading the benefits of event tourism throughout the area but I feel when the crowds are in Portrush for the airshow it is illogical to ask thousands of spectators in Portrush at the airshow to move along the already busy coast road to Portstewart to see the fireworks.

“It is about as logical as having the fireworks at the end of the hugely popular Portstewart Red Sails Festival in Portrush instead of Portstewart.

This could well end up with a massive traffic jam but time will no doubt tell. ”

Council Officials have refused to make any comment on this decision, stating that they do not comment on matters raised by Elected Members.
