The Mayor, Alderman Mark Fielding, said: “It’s hugely disappointing to learn that this beautiful building has been targeted by vandals and we are now left counting the cost. Such mindless damage comes at a price, diverting valuable Council resources which would be better used elsewhere.”

“Over the past number of years there’s been a sustained effort to rejuvenate Portrush’s physical appearance which makes this type of behaviour even more frustrating. The Town Hall is a precious part of the resort’s history and I wholly condemn those who set out to damage it.
