‘End of an era with Barry’s Portrush being put up for sale’ – UUP Alderman Norman Hillis

1 Mins read

End of an era with Barry’s Portrush being put up for sale.

UUP Alderman Norman Hillis said ” I got an enormous shock this morning when I got a phone call from Kristina Trufelli to tell me that she and her sister Lisa were putting Barry’s Portrush up for sale.

I have to confess I could hardly take it in with Barry’s being such an important part of Portrush for over 93 years.

Kristina did say she felt that now was a good time to pass the baton to someone who would ensure generations can still enjoy the fun. I certainly do hope this will be the case. My earliest childhood memories are of being at a fancy dress parade in Barry’s to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth.

I have very fond memories of Kristina and Lisa’s grandparents in the control booth at the dodgems in Barry’s. Frank Trufelli was a great supporter of Portrush and gave me some good advice over the years.

I really hope the business will be sold as a going concern so future generations will have the immense fun that so many of us have enjoyed over the years. It is an anxious time for Barry’s full time staff about what the future holds.

I firmly believe that Barrys is a vital part of Portrush and I do hope it remains so.
