Causeway Coast & Glens council will consider the request for additional grant funding ( £10,000 ) from the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association of Northern Ireland to facilitate the 2019 Pipe Band Championships in Portrush tomorrow evening at the Leisure and Development committee.

Organisers say they need extra cash due to a change in venue resulting in “a number of challenges”.

A letter to Council read ‘ Following the completion of the Portrush Environmental Impact Scheme, the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association Northern Ireland Branch (RSPBANI) is unable to use the Recreation Grounds for the 2019 Pipe Band Championships specifically due to the expansion of Ramore Avenue.

RSPBANI would again like to host a Championships in Portrush in 2019 however the alternative site in Landsdowne Road car park presents the RSPBANI Branch with a number of challenges including securing an entrance fee, extra facilities and administration costs.

Therefore, it is requested that causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council consider an additional grant to ensure that the event is financially viable. We hope the Council see the benefits of the event, both economically and socially following the completion of the Sheffield Hallam University Economic Impact study report. To make the event viable for 2019 RSPBANI Branch requests an additional grant of £10,000.00’
