Have you spotted our new display outside of Portrush Town Hall?

In honour of the 200th anniversary of the RNLI, Causeway Coast and Glens Museum Services have developed outdoor panels which explore the fascinating history of the RNLI in Portrush and Co. Antrim. From the establishment of the RNLI in 1824 by Sir William Hilary, to the first motorised lifeboat at Portrush in 1924 to the present day; this display celebrates the tremendous bravery and dedication shown by generations of RNLI crew and volunteers.

Make sure to stop and take a look on your next trip to the Port!
