Councillors propose notice of motion to rename Bushmills sports facility

1 Mins read

Alderman Sharon McKillop has proposed to rename the sports facility in Dunderave, Bushmills to the Bobby Greer Sports Complex.

Bobby was well-known in the village and across the Borough. He passed away suddenly last November.

The motion will come before full Council on 4th May 2021.

The motion reads :

“That this council recognises Bobby Greer and his extraordinary contribution to the Bushmills’ community. Whilst Bobby was a humble and unassuming individual, his love and commitment to the entire Bushmills’ community was renowned and tireless. Specifically, Bobby was a ‘leading light’ in the fund raising efforts and development of Bushmills’ United Football Club.

“Furthermore, his moral and ethical characteristics were an example to all, not just in football, but as a community leader. Bobby was also instrumental in securing the football pitch at Dundarave for future generations of Bushmills United. Following his sad passing in 2020, Bobby was described in the Antrim Guardian as an ‘absolute legend’ and ‘the kindest and most caring person. In recognition of Bobby’s life and his commitment and contribution to Bushmills, this Council names the Dundarave Sports Facility as the Bobby Greer Sports Complex, installing appropriate signage. To upgrade the site, officers investigate the options, with the intention of installing floodlighting at both the sports pitch and MUGA’.”
