Rathlin Island ‘stand off’

McAuley Multimedia.. “Spirit of Rathlin” Rathlin ferry.

A local resident on Rathlin Island refused to leave the ferry service which operates between the island and Ballycastle, after being told they wouldn’t be able to travel to the mainland.

The Ferry was unable to sail as a result of the ‘stand off’ yesterday (Monday) and police were called.

The current policy by the ferry operator is that of not transporting passengers to or from the island unless its essential, despite the easing of some lockdown restrictions.

Attending the island this morning, the PSNI have now confirmed a report has been submitted to the PPS.
