Speaking to Causeway Coast Community following the news that Barry’s has gone on the market, MLA Maurice Bradley said
‘Barry’s is a name synonymous with Portrush, this morning’s news is a huge shock.
When we think of Portrush – we think of Barrys. It holds a special place in all of our hearts. Throughout the years it has helped make many memories for both local families and those from further afield.
I know that this decision would not have been taken lightly by the Trufelli family, and I am hopeful that a buyer will be found and that the full-time staff employed there will be taken on.’
