Portrush airshow to go ahead
The Northern Ireland International Airshow will go ahead this year.
Councillors in Coleraine last night voted at a special meeting to go ahead with the show which had been under threat because of funding difficulties.
The event has been saved following a funding intervention from the Coleraine Borough Chamber of Commerce and Industry and local businesses.
Mayor of Coleraine, Sandy Gilkinson, said; “I can confirm that the NI International Airshow will take place in September 2010 at West Bay, Portrush.
“On behalf of Coleraine Borough Council I wish to thank the local business community and the Chamber for coming together to save this spectacular event, it shows tremendous spirit in a difficult economic period.”
Coleraine Borough Council staff will now continue to make arrangements for the airshow to take place on the first weekend of September.
