‘Ratmoring’ In Portrush

1 Mins read

The popular phrase ‘Ramoring In Portrush’ was quickly changed to ‘Ratmoring In Portrush’ by social media users last night.

The popular restaurant at Portrush harbour, The Ramore, was the scene of a chase between staff and a rat.

Customers were caught up in the dramatic scenes as staff tried to corner and contain a rat which has made its way into the building.

In a video posted on social media, the staff chased the rodent with brushes as a mixture of laughter and panic ensues with several customers standing on their chairs.

Eventually, the rat got caught up inside a wire bucket seat where staff pinned down the rodent. A video graphically shows a staff member standing on the rat in what appears to have killed the creature.

People quickly took to social media to voice their opinion, many condemned the way in which the capture and killing of the rodent happened, especially in front of customers.

Social media users were quick to share the video which has been viewed over 100,000 times, with a range of internet memes being created at the same time.

A spokesperson for Causeway Coast and Glens said ‘We aware of this incident and Environmental Health Officers are currently investigating.’

We have not posted the video due to the nature of the content. – Given the nature of the content Facebook deemed it “violent or graphic” and users had to hit an “uncover” button in order to see it.

Q Radio journalists contacted the Ramore for a comment, but have been told there will be no spokesperson or statement available.
