Police investigating vandalism to Portrush Bowling Club


Police are investigating an incident of vandalism to the Portrush bowling clubhouse.

The incident occurred sometime over the weekend sometime between Friday evening and Sunday morning when it was discovered.

Police have said: “Police received a report at 12:10pm on Sunday, 26th July, that entry had been gained to premises on Ramore Avenue in Portrush.

“It’s believed that sometime between 8pm on Friday (25th July) and the time the incident was reported to police, furniture inside the premises were overturned while a hoover was damaged.

“Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police on 101, and quote reference number 903 of 26/07/20.”

Local DUP Councillor, John McAuley, has condemned the actions of those involved in this pointless act, and asked for anyone with information to contact the PSNI.

“These premises are an essential part of the Portrush community, in particular a very successful bowling club, and the offenders must feel the full force of the law as a deterrent to those who think these type of behaviour is acceptable in today’s society.

“I have been in contact with officials from the Bowling Club and Council Officers in order to get the damage repaired as a matter of urgency and to ensure that the premises were made secure in line with guidance from the PSNI.”
